Cold Front Brings Relief From Hot and Humid Weather

A cold front passing out of the province today will usher a cooler and drier air mass into southern Manitoba. This will bring a welcome break from the hot and humid early-June weather the region has seen, along with more settled conditions.

On Saturday, a high pressure centre moving in from the north will bring cooler daytime highs in the low 20s to southern Manitoba.

A cold front will sweep through southern Manitoba this morning, bringing some cloud, a slight chance of showers or thunderstorms, and a breezy northerly wind. In Winnipeg, any chance for rain should end by midday, leaving dry conditions and a high in the mid-20s. Unfortunately, the city won’t see clear skies in the afternoon; behind the cold front, smoke from the northern Prairie forest fires will push into the region. It may end up being fairly noticeable for a few hours after the passage of the cold front, otherwise it should mainly appear as haze and not have too significant an impact on air quality. The winds will ease in the evening, then temperatures will head to an overnight low in the low teens, the coolest in a while.

Through the weekend, a large area of high pressure will settle into the region. Saturday and Sunday won’t bring cloud to the region, rather it will largely just be a question of how much smoke lingers over the region. Temperatures will be cool on Saturday with a high in the low 20s and a low near 10 °C. Temperatures will begin to warm on Sunday with a high back in the mid-20s and a low in the mid-teens.

Long Range Outlook

To start next week, daytime highs will once again climb back to around 30 °C. The humidity levels will stay much lower and keep the heat a bit more comfortable than last week. By mid-week, conditions could turn unsettled again and bring the chance of showers or thunderstorms to the region for several days.

Today’s seasonal daytime high in Winnipeg is 23 °C while the seasonal overnight low is 10 °C.
