Hot summer weather will return to the Red River Valley on Friday.

Friday will be when the hot and humid weather settles back into the region. Winnipeg will see temperatures climb to a high near 32 °C and a breezy southerly wind will draw humid conditions northwards. By the end of the day, the dewpoint is forecast to reach almost 20 °C which would make for noticeably muggy conditions.

A cold front will push eastwards across the region on Friday evening into the night. It looks likely that it will support an area of showers and thunderstorms as it moves through.

The weekend will bring more sunshine with a return to comfortable humidity levels. Both Saturday and Sunday will see high temperatures in the upper 20s.

Today’s seasonal daytime high in Winnipeg is 26°C while the seasonal overnight low is 13°C.
