Today will be marked by relatively cloudy skies with a breezy northwesterly wind as the low pressure system that brought severe thunderstorms to Southern Manitoba yesterday slowly moves out of the province. This has ushered in cooler air once again which will keep our temperatures fairly cool for the next few days – we’re expecting daytime highs to only climb into the low-to-mid 20’s and overnight lows to sit near the 12–13°C mark.
Tuesday will be a pleasant day with mainly sunny skies and a high near 24°C and while there’s a chance of a shower or thunderstorm on Tuesday evening, it really is an outside chance and much more likely to happen over SW Manitoba than over the Red River Valley.
500mb upper trough approaching Manitoba from the Northern Prairies on Wednesday evening (from the GFS).
On Wednesday we’ll see a chance of showers later in the day under a mixed sky as a long-wave trough rotates towards Southern Manitoba from the Northern Prairies. At this point it doesn’t look too energetic and there’s little in the way of thunderstorms expected. We’ll se a high near 22°C and a low once agin in the 12–13°C range.
