Mild And Unsettled Conditions Ahead

Out of the grip of Arctic air, Winnipeg will see seasonably mild conditions to start the week. With the warmth will come some unsettled conditions that may bring a couple rounds of showers to the city.

Winnipeg will see a cloudy start to the day ahead of a weak “cool” front that will push through midday. The front will bring a few showers to the region as it moves through, followed by some afternoon clearing. Temperatures should pop up to a high near 18 °C in the afternoon with winds picking up out of the northwest to 30 gusting 50 km/h.

Skies will stay clear only briefly in the evening with more spreading into the region overnight ahead of the next disturbance. Temperatures will dip to a low near 9 °C with winds easing.
