Seasonably Mild Conditions Return to Winnipeg

Winnipeg will see temperatures once again climb slightly above seasonal values over the next couple days.

A low pressure system advancing across the Prairies will send temperatures back above freezing in Winnipeg. With plenty of sunshine today, southerly winds will increase into the 30–40 km/h range. The breezy southerlies mark the arrival of a warm air mass, though, and the city should see a near-seasonal high around 0 °C. Some cloud cover will push into the region on Friday night with temperatures heading to a low near -5 °C.

Saturday will bring mostly cloudy skies to Winnipeg as a low pressure system crosses the province. The wind will ease in the morning as the low arrives and temperatures will climb to a high near +2 °C. The low will push out of the region on Saturday evening, ushering in northwest winds of 30–40 km/h with a good chance of some flurries through the night. Temperatures will dip to a low near -6 °C.
