    As of noon, the clearing sky is just west of Winnipeg and, unless we get get at least a breath of wind, it might be hard to flush this cloud out of the valley. I still expect some sunshine this afternoon and a high of 23 degrees. 
    We are still in a mild pattern heading into the end of the week and the first part of the weekend but I want to flag Friday night as a potential time for some severe weather. 
    There is a deep upper trough and a surface trough setting up on Friday. That will bring some serious moisture to the party as the lifting mechanism (trough) moves across the province through the day. Expect a rather warm, windy and humid day again on Friday as storms fire up in the west in the afternoon and evening, and in the Red River Valley later Friday evening. 
    Some of these could reach severe criteria. Expect watches and warnings to be issued as the system develops. There is potential for localized pockets of 25-50mm of rain.

    Expect cloud and occasional showers and a 21 degree high on Saturday. 
    Skies clear once again on Sunday with temps close to seasonal. The normals for this time of year are 5 and 17.

    As of 2pm, the cold front and the line of storms is passing Portage la Prairie. That should reach the Red River Valley by late afternoon and be east of here by early evening. 
    It's a narrow line but could be rather intense when it passes. Lots of lightning on the CBC Lightning Tracker. 
    Once it does move east this evening, skies will clear partially as we head into a very pleasant day on Thursday.
    You'll want to make some plans outside on Thursday.  Temps will be a pleasant 23 with fairly light winds Thursday afternoon, and you know these days are numbered at this time of year. 
    Friday is a transition day into cooler weather on the weekend. We are still fairly mild on Friday but there is a chance of showers and thunderstorms once again, likely in the afternoon and evening after a sunny start to the day. 
    Expect cloud and occasional showers and a cooler 18 degree high on Saturday. Notice the gusty winds for Friday and Saturday in my wind forecast below.

    We have reached 30 degrees in Winnipeg as of 2pm. This is an all out summer day right across the province. Churchill is at 24 degrees with sun and cloud. It's humid again as well. Dew point temps are pushing 20 degrees across the south again today. 
    There is a change on the way for Wednesday. I have a lot more cloud in my forecast and a chance of showers in the afternoon as a low passes through central Manitoba. It doesn't look like a soaker but there will be some showers scattered through the region.
    Wednesday also be very windy from the west in the afternoon. 
    Thursday is the day to make some plans outside, maybe raking all the leaves that blow off the trees on Wednesday.  
    Temps will be a pleasant 23 with fairly light winds Thursday afternoon, and you know these days are numbered at this time of year. 
    Friday is a transition day into cooler weather on the weekend. We are still fairly mild on Friday but there is a chance of showers and thunderstorms once again. 
    Expect cloud and showers and a cooler 19 degree high on Saturday.

    As expected, a hot start to the work week. Humidity is also an issue today as we climb to an afternoon high close to 30 degrees. The dew point is already at 18.4 degrees and that is very sticky. This is more like July weather. 
    We may be setting some humidex records over the next two days in Winnipeg and in Brandon. That would be Monday and Tuesday. 
    Tuesday will also be a windy day with gusts to 50 km/h as the temp soars to 30 degrees. 
    Wednesday is cooler at 23 and is also a gusty day. 
    It's the later part of the week, Friday and Saturday, when we'll likely see some showers or even thunderstorms. I'll track that carefully as the disturbances unfold.

    Well, here we are at 2:30pm and the sun is shining. Because of the sunshine showing up big time, temps are pushing above my forecast high, currently at 16 degrees. Skies continue to clear tonight and we could see some patchy fog overnight. 
    Saturday starts with sunshine but there will be some cloud building in the middle of the day with a slight chance of a passing shower in the early afternoon. Temps shouls hover around 20 degrees in the afternoon. 
    We'll be in the mid 20s on Sunday and upper 20s next week. 
    Even the overnight lows early in the week will be in the mid to upper teens. 
    Normal temps are now 6 and 18.

    You know when you have guests coming over and you are busy preparing, because you want everything to be perfect, and then they
    show up a half hour early? Frustrating, right?
    Well, that's how I was feeling about the cooler weather... early and frustrated!
    We have another significant rain moving up from the south today and tonight, but that news is easier to handle knowing what happen after that system passes. 
    First we'll talk about the 25-30mm we'll have on the ground by Friday mid day. Here in the Red River Valley, the rain should wrap up by mid morning followed by some late day clearing. 
    Saturday bring a sun/cloud mix and Sunday is mainly sunny. 
    We are heading back into summer. That's right sock and shoe haters everywhere. Back to shorts and flip flops next week. 
    Temps will surge back into the 20s over the weekend and upper 20s next week. 
    Even the overnight lows early in the week will be in the mid to upper teens. 
    Normal temps are now 6 and 19.

    I, for one, am voting for more sunshine. We may even see a few glimpses of that later in the day. 

    There's more rain on the way Thursday and it will be a significant amount. Count on a 25-30mm rainfall starting mid day Thursday for the northern Red River Valley. 

    This is coming up from the south so the rain will start earlier along the international border. 

    Showers will still be present from the Red River Valley east through Friday morning, then we'll start to see some clearing late in the day.

    Over the weekend, temps sneak back into the 20s and continue to warm up into next week. 

    By Monday, it'll feel like summer again so don't put away the summer clothes just yet.

    The rain is pretty much done. The rest of election day is just cloudy and a little cool. We picked up between 15 and 17mm in Winnipeg last evening and overnight.

    I haven’y changed anything in my forecast for this week. I still think we’ll have a lot of cloud cover and more rain by Thursday afternoon. 

    Late in the day on Wednesday, we may see a few breaks of sunshine but, if we do, it’ll be short-lived. 

    Thursday’s rain is significant. Count on a 25-30mm rainfall starting mid day Thursday for the northern Red River Valley. 

    This is coming up from the south so the rain will start earlier along the international border.

    By this time next week, it’ll feel like summer again.

    We vote tomorrow, but by the end of the week, we’ll be voting for more sunshine. 

    This cloudy week will also bring a couple of low pressure centres that will dampen whatever fields that are still being harvested. 

    The first one happens later on Monday into Tuesday.

    The left-over morning showers on Tuesday should wrap up in Winnipeg about the same time the polls open.

    There is a slight chance for a few sunny breaks on Wednesday but that’s about it for the entire week. 

    The next low moves in Thursday later in the day and carries on through the night into Friday morning. Expect some clearing Friday afternoon just in time for the weekend. 

    Right now, the weekend is looking sunny and warmer.

    Another gorgeous Friday. You'll want to get outside and enjoy this one. We have cooler weather settling in the for the weekend. 

    A surface high pressure system parks over Manitoba this weekend and keeps a rainy mess to the south of the international border on Saturday.

    We still have a chilly high of 16 degrees with a mix of sun and cloud on Saturday. Sunday will be brighter and slightly warmer. 

    What follows this weekend is a lot of cloud cover through next week and a couple of lows that will bring some rain. 

    Hopefully, a lot of harvesting gets done in the next few days. 

    Expect a windy and cloudy day on Monday with some showers in the afternoon changing to rain in the evening and overnight. 

    The showers gradually taper off through the day on Tuesday and, by Wednesday afternoon, we have a spot of sunshine. 

    Another low moves some rain through southern Manitoba on Thursday and Friday next week. 

    The normal high is 20 and the normal low is 8. Those numbers fall off fast through this month.

    The sun will try to find its way through the clouds at times today but the cloud will win. Expect a high close to 21 this afternoon.

    We can also expect a few more showers this evening and overnight. I’m not expecting anything too heavy out of this. We need a stretch of ‘not too wet’ weather as the harvest is in full swing. 

    By Friday morning we are back into the sunshine and it will be another beautiful day to end the work week. Skies will be sunny with a breezy high of 22 degrees. Great harvesting weather on Friday. 

    I’m taking some of the cloud out of the Saturday forecast but temps will still be on the cool side of normal. A rainy system is just missing us to the south on the weekend. 

    Sunday is a little milder with a sun/cloud mix but the skies turn grey early next week with cloudy skies on Monday and Tuesday and a solid chance for some more rain late on Monday and into Tuesday.
