  • John's Weather Journal for August 10th

    Yesterday’s rain was a good thing. Hopefully it was enough but, from what I’m hearing, likely not.  We are still very dry in the southeast and heading into another extended dry stretch.

    What stands out to me over the next four days is the lack of wind. High pressure will stall over southern Manitoba and bring sunny, warm conditions with fairly light winds right through the weekend. 

    Temps will start to creep up into the upper 20s by the weekend as well. 

    The next chance for rain that I see is on Tuesday night into Wednesday.

    Is it me or does it seem like Wednesdays lately are the cool and wet days? Well, that’s what today is and we did expect it. 

    After today, high pressure settles in for the rest of the week and weekend. It’ll be back to dry, sunny conditions with seasonal temps through into next week. 

    We do need the moisture across the south, but especially in the southeast. Fields are dry and the grass is getting crunchy.

    I’m watching a few afternoon showers for the Red River Valley. It’s a line west of the region as of noon, gently drifting east. The main event is tonight. 

    Expect showers or thunderstorms late evening and overnight. The rain will be a little spotty but we’ll take the moisture any way we can get it at this point. 

    Here's a look at the RPM Model on Futurecast and the rain expected overnight into Wednesday morning. 

    Wednesday could be fairly wet in the morning south of the lakes, tapering to showers in the afternoon, clearing in the evening. Wednesday is also the coolest day of the week. 

    After Wednesday, high pressure settles in for the rest of the week and weekend. It’ll be back to dry, sunny conditions with seasonal temps through into next week.
