On this page, we have current climate-based information for Winnipeg. We utilize the official temperature and precipitation measurements from the Environment and Climate Change Canada weather station located at the Winnipeg airport (identifier: CXWG). Generally we try to update these charts 1-2 times per month.
We are currently producing 3 kinds of charts: daily temperatures and means, daily temperature deviation from mean, and precipitation. They are available by month as well as as an annual graph. For our Annual Precipitation graphs, we have included the precipitation measurements from the Rob’s Obs CoCoRaHS station as well. Due to the nature of automated weather stations, the XWG climate station won’t catch all the snow that falls (particularly when it’s windy) and end up under-reporting the amount of precipitation.
The Rob’s Obs site is located very close to the airport and has a long history of accurate snowfall measurements and the liquid equivalent water contained within the snow. To better represent the actual annual accumulation of precipitation in Winnipeg, we have included it in our annual summaries.
