  • We are into a very dry and sunny stretch of weather here in southern Manitoba. An upper ridge across the prairies continues to pump in the heat. 

    Temps in southern Saskatchewan and Albert, again yesterday, were in the 30 degree range. The ridge is gradually shifting east so expect similar temps in western Manitoba over the weekend. 

    Here in the Red River Valley, we’ll be in the mid 20’s at least on Saturday and close to 30 degrees by Sunday.  

    We can also expect some windy conditions along with those warm temps. Winds will be strong southerly both Saturday and Sunday. 

    Temps across most of the north on Saturday will be just as warm. In Churchill, it’s a different story though. You’ll wake up to a temp in the mid teens and get cooler through the day, 8 degrees or so by late afternoon.

  • John's Weather Journal for September 5th

    The major weather theme this week as the kids (and teachers) head back to school is the gradual warm up and summer-like conditions I’m expecting for the weekend in southern Manitoba. 

    Tuesday night will be the coolest. 4 degrees in Winnipeg. Slightly cooler outside city limits. After that, temps gradually climb back into the mid to upper 20s for the weekend.

    Something to keep in mind, at this time of year, when we get warm, it’s usually with the help of a gusty wind. Seems like that will be the case on Saturday and Sunday here in the south.
