Hot Conditions Return to Southern Manitoba

An upper ridge will bring hot summer weather back to southern Manitoba this weekend.

Another very warm air mass building into the region will send temperatures in Winnipeg back into the low 30s this weekend. Alongside the heat, an upper ridge building across the Prairies will keep skies mainly clear over the next few days.

A weak ridge of high pressure draped across southern Manitoba will also keep winds light the next couple days. Winnipeg should see a bit of wind by Sunday afternoon, but only southerlies to around 20 km/h.

RDPS 2m Temperature Forecast valid 21Z Sunday July 11, 2021
Manitoba will see very warm temperatures on Sunday with highs in the low 30s through most of the province.

Overnight lows will warm to around the 20 °C mark for the weekend, but humidity levels should stay fairly comfortable through the weekend.

Long Range Outlook

Forecasts show next week starting with unsettled conditions as a couple disturbances move through the region. Unfortunately no widespread rain can be guaranteed for the Red River Valley; these systems will more likely produce scattered showers and thunderstorms rather than broader areas of rain.

Forecasts show temperatures breaking back to seasonal values mid-week, then climbing back to the low 30s for next weekend.

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