Winnipeg will be under the influence of the storm system that has been bringing showers to southern Manitoba the past couple days for one more yet, but then a return to more pleasant weather will quickly return for the end of May!
More showers are on the way for Winnipeg today as moisture continues to stream southwards through the province on the back-side of the storm system that moved through over the weekend. Breezy northwesterly winds of 30 gusting 50 km/h will make today’s high of just 11°C feel rather dreary. The chance for showers will continue tonight, although it won’t be quite as likely, as temperatures drop to a low near 6°C.
Sunshine will return to Winnipeg on Tuesday as skies clear for the afternoon. There will be a slight chance of showers in the morning as one more little disturbance ripples through, but as skies clear midday temperatures will warm up to a high near 18°C. The wind will continue to be gusty out of the northwest, but the sunshine should make for a much more pleasant afternoon. Skies will completely clear out by evening as winds taper off and Winnipeg heads to a low near 8°C.
Wednesday will be a beautiful day to end the month on; sunny skies with a high near 24°C are on the way with light winds of just 10-20 km/h out of the west. The low will be relatively mild on Wednesday night at around 10°C.
The remainder of the work week looks pleasant with continued sunny to mixed skies and highs in the low 20’s. A system will approach Manitoba on Friday, but at the moment guidance suggests it will remain to the south and west. There is general agreement that next week may turn more unsettled once again, so we’ll be keeping an eye on that as the week progresses.
Winnipeg’s seasonal daytime high is currently 22°C while the seasonal overnight low is 8°C.
