After a warm Friday, a cold front will slump through the region and usher seasonal temperatures back into the region.
It will be a beautiful late-summer day in Winnipeg today as breezy southerly winds ease this morning and temperatures head to a high in the upper 20s. Skies should be partly cloudy through the day, but trend cloudier towards the evening as a cold front approaches. As the front pushes through, it will bring a slight chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm to the region, followed by northwest winds picking up to around 30 km/h. Those winds will gradually ease into the evening as temperatures head to a low near 10 °C.
An area of high pressure associated with an air mass of more seasonal temperatures will build into the province through the weekend. On Saturday, northwesterly winds will pick back up to around 30 gusting 50 km/h as temperatures head to a high around the 20 °C mark. Skies should stay mainly sunny through the day. The winds will taper off in the evening, then temperatures will head to a low near 6 °C under clear skies.
On Sunday, the area of high pressure will move across the province. Temperatures will again climb to a high around the 20 °C mark, but winds will be much lighter. Skies will also likely be mixed as a bit of cloud from a system passing by through the Dakotas drifts across the region. Skies should clear on Sunday night with a low near 10 °C again.
Long Range Outlook
The extended outlook continues to show near-seasonal temperatures, trending slightly on the warmer side. A system passing through the region may bring some afternoon/evening showers on Monday, then the city should see another couple of nice days. A few showers are possible again in the second half of the work week.
Today’s seasonal daytime high in Winnipeg is 19 °C while the seasonal overnight low is 7 °C.
