Winnipeg’s cool weather will continue with a bit of snow to kick off the work week. Cool conditions with more cloud than sun will continue through much of the week.
Winnipeg will start the work week with a bit of snow. While unwelcome, it’s a far cry from the blizzard that pounded portions of southern Alberta and Saskatchewan yesterday. The chance for snow will taper off by late morning as the low pressure system responsible for it moves from the Dakotas eastwards into Minnesota. Behind it, the city will continue to see cloudy skies. Breezy winds out of the northeast near 30 km/h this morning will gradually ease this afternoon. These winds will be continually tapping into cooler temperatures through the day, keeping Winnipeg’s high near a cool 7°C. The city will see light easterly winds and a low near 0°C tonight as the cloud cover breaks up a bit.
Tuesday will bring mixed skies to Winnipeg as a ridge of high pressure moves though. The city should see some sunshine in the morning, but some convective cloud and incoming system cloud from the next disturbance will result in cloudy skies redeveloping for the afternoon. Winds will stay light out of the east with temperatures climbing to another below-seasonal high near 9°C. The cloudy skies will stay for Tuesday night with a low near +2°C.
On Wednesday, cloudy skies will continue with light winds. A chance of showers will develop through the afternoon and continue overnight. Temperatures will climb to a high near 11°C then fall to an overnight low near +2 or +3°C.
Long Range Outlook
The rest of the week will bring variable cloudiness and occasional chances for showers. Temperatures will return to near-seasonal values, but will likely continue to trend on the cooler side.
Today’s seasonal daytime high in Winnipeg is 15°C while the seasonal overnight low is +2°C.
