    John's Weather Journal for October 17

    I hope you get a chance to spend some time outside today. Temps across the south will be in the low 20s. 

    A big change is on the way tonight and through Wednesday, and it’s all about the wind in the south, the snow in the far north.  

    I’m tracking an intense low pressure system into central and northern Manitoba that will bring snow to the north. Through Wednesday, another 25-35 cms of snow will fall in Brochet and Tadoule Lake followed by strong winds and blowing snow. 

    Blizzard will exist right across that northern section of northern Manitoba into Churchill through the day on Wednesday.

    The south won’t get the snow, but will get the wind. Along the cold front, winds be get very gusty. Tuesday into Wednesday, in western Manitoba, we could see gusts as high 110km/h east of Riding and Duck mountains.

    Wind Warning Issued for Southwest

    By Wednesday morning, winds in the Red River Valley will be gusting to at least 80km/h. Afternoon temps will be a bit cooler at 14 but still above the seasonal normal. 

    Going through the rest of the week, temps are consistently mild with Friday being the warmest day at 21. Find a patio for Friday afternoon. 

    Wind Forecast for Winnipeg

    Tuesday: S @ 20/30 this afternoon.

    Wednesday: W @ 50/80 in the morning . W @ 50/80 in the afternoon. (some gusts to 90)

    Thursday:  SE @ 10 in the morning.  S @ 20/25 in the afternoon.

    Friday: S @ 20/25 the morning. S @ 25/30 in the afternoon.

    John's Weather Journal for October 16

    If you like mild and dry weather in autumn, you’ll like this weather pattern. An upper level ridge is building across the prairies bringing temps into the 20s through the southern Prairies on Tuesday. We’ll get to 19 here in Winnipeg. 

    Wednesday will be a bit cooler at 14 but still above the seasonal normal. However, Wednesday will also be very windy here in southern Manitoba with gusts to 70km/h. Trees should be fairly bare after that day. 

    Going through the rest of the week, temps are consistently mild with Friday being the warmest day at 21. Find a patio for Friday afternoon. 

    For the weekend, book a tee time, gather the kids for a picnic in the park, take the bikes to Birds Hill, or all of the above. 

    Wind Forecast for Winnipeg

    Monday: W @ 20/30 this afternoon.

    Tuesday: S @ 10 in the morning . SW @ 20/30 in the afternoon.

    Wednesday:  W @ 40 in the morning.  W @ 40/70 in the afternoon.

    Thursday: S @ 10 the morning. S @ 20/30 in the afternoon.

    The far north is dealing with winter today behind the intense low pressure system that is now pushing out over Hudson Bay. It’s a deep low with a tight pressure gradient so winds behind the system are extreme.

    Winds will likely be gusting to 90 or 100km/h along the Hudson Bay coast including Churchill on Friday.  

    Here in the south, we have cooler temps today with a healthy dose of sunshine. Expect a high of 10 degrees. There is an abrupt change heading our way for Saturday. 

    Another quick moving low brings a wintry mix of wet snow and rain to the south (mostly southeast) on Saturday morning. The northern extent of this will be just north of the Trans-Canada highway.

    This is NOT the snow that turns the ground white until March. If there is some accumulation, it’ll be in the grassy areas and melt quickly. Most of it will melt as it hits the ground. Still, a messy and cool day at 6 degrees. 

    You’ll really need to dress for cool and wet conditions if you are heading to the Bomber game on Saturday afternoon. (3pm kick-off)

    Skies will start to clear in the early evening on Saturday which means a chilly -2 is in the cards for Sunday morning. 

    There is also a chance for some patchy fog on Saturday overnight into Sunday morning. 

    We’ll get back to 10 degrees (seasonal normal) on Sunday but daytime highs next week will be consistently in the mid to upper teens. 

    Wind Forecast for Winnipeg

    Friday: W @ 20/30 this afternoon.

    Saturday: N @ 10 in the morning . W @ 10 in the afternoon.

    Sunday:  S @ 15/20 in the morning.  W @ 15/20 in the afternoon.

    Monday: S @ 20 the morning. W @ 20 in the afternoon.

    John's Weather Journal for October 12

    A snowfall warning is still in effect for the snowfall expected in the north. The low I was talking about yesterday continues to track through the region today and into this evening. 

    15-25cm could be on the ground by Friday morning in Tadoule Lake and Brochet. Southern sections within those regions could see some freezing rain as well. 

    Behind the system on Friday, winds will likely be gusting to 100km/h along the Hudson Bay coast. 

    Here in the south, it’s another mild day day, although cloudier than yesterday. We should reach 16 degrees this afternoon with the help of a stiff breeze from the south.

    Expect cooler temps on Friday with a healthy dose of sunshine before an abrupt change heading into the weekend. 

    Another quick moving low brings a wintry mix of wet snow and rain to the south on Saturday morning. The northern extent of this will be just north of the Trans-Canada highway.

    This is NOT the snow that turns the ground white until March. If there is some accumulation, it’ll be in the grassy areas and melt quickly. Most of it will melt as it hits the ground. Still, a messy and cool day at 6 degrees. 

    You’ll really need to dress for cool and wet conditions if you are heading to the Bomber game on Saturday afternoon.

    A snowfall warning has now been issued for the snowfall expected in the north. The low I was talking about yesterday continues to develop and track toward that region into Thursday and Thursday evening. 

    15-25cm could be on the ground by Friday morning in Tadoule Lake and Brochet. Southern sections within those regions could see some freezing rain as well. 

    Behind the system on Friday, winds will likely be gusting to 100km/h along the Hudson Bay coast. 

    Here in the south, it’s a sunny, windy and relatively mild day. We’ll reach 15 degrees with winds gusting to 60km/h.

    Expect similar temperatures on Thursday with less wind and a mix of sun and cloud, then a cooler but sunny day on Friday. 

    Another quick moving low brings possible flurries to the extreme southwest Saturday morning but, by the time that reaches the Red River Valley in the afternoon, it’ll be showers.

    John's Weather Journal for October 10

    Most of the weather affecting the province over the next couple of days will be in the north. 

    I’m tracking another low moving into central Manitoba on Thursday that will bring a significant snowfall to the northwest by Thursday afternoon and evening. Thompson will be on the southern edge of that band of precipitation and will likely get some rain. 

    Here in the south we can expect very windy conditions, but sunny, on Wednesday followed by varying amounts of cloud cover through the rest of the work week. 

    Expect mid teens, at least, until Friday when daytime highs are closer to the seasonal normal. Saturday’s high will likely stay in the single digits.

    Your Thanksgiving Forecast for Monday.

     

    John's Weather Journal for October 6th

    Another beautifully sunny day here in the south and much of the north. Temps will be up around 17 to 18 degrees today south of the lakes but the wind makes an appearance this afternoon, gusting to 40km/h.

    Saturday, I’ll be tracking a low crossing the north that will bring some rain to areas like Thompson and Norway House, and well into the northeast section of the province. 

    The trailing cold front could spark a shower in the south from the Red River Valley east to the Ontario border. That would happen later Saturday afternoon along with a wind gusting to 60km/h out of the west. 

    After a high of 18 on Saturday in the south, Sunday’s high will be closer to 13 degrees which is closer to normal. 

    Thanksgiving Monday is the cooler day of the weekend with a high temp of 9 or 10 degrees.

    We hover around the seasonal normals through the rest of next week.

    John's Weather Journal October 6, 2017

    Winds will be much quieter today with a high temp close to the seasonal normal high of 14 across the south. 

    Friday, we warm up to 17 degrees but winds start to get gusty. By Saturday, winds are west at 40 gusting to 60km/h and the afternoon highs are more like 18 degrees. 

    I also see a chance for a few sprinkles of rain Saturday afternoon, mainly in the southeast including the Red River Valley. That shower activity is along a cold front so expect a cooler Sunday. 

    By the time Thanksgiving Monday arrives, we are in a chilly weather pattern with a high temp in the single digits.
