There’s no sign of typical winter conditions in Winnipeg this week with temperatures remaining well above seasonal values right through the weekend.
Persistent upper ridging over the Prairies will keep a mild Pacific air mass over the region and keep typical winter conditions at bay. Winnipeg will see a warm day today with a high near +1 °C as skies clear later this morning. Westerly winds will continue through the day at 15 to 25 km/h. Temperatures will dip to a low near -8 °C tonight under mainly clear skies. Tomorrow will be more or less a repeat of today, but with nothing but sun and light winds.
On Friday, slightly cooler temperatures will move into the area behind a weak upper-level disturbance. Skies will likely be a mix of sun and cloud and winds will be light. Skies will stay partly cloudy through the night with temperatures dropping to a low near -10 °C.
Long Range Outlook
Temperatures climb right back to near the freezing mark this weekend, with even warmer temperatures likely building in to start next week. Cloudier conditions forecast to move into the region on Tuesday, followed by a return to seasonal temperatures near the end fo the week.
Today’s seasonal daytime high in Winnipeg is -7 °C while the seasonal overnight low is -16 °C.
