  • 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.

  • John's Weather Journal for August 31st

    Winds have shifted to the southeast today in the Island Lake area. That should move the heavy smoke away from some of the communities that have been evacuated. 

    An Air Quality Advisory is still in effect for the entire northern half of the province. 

    Here in the south, we’ll have a warm and windy day. Clouds increase tonight in advance of a low that will offer up some much needed moisture. The western edge of the province will start to see those showers and storms tonight. . 

    For the Red River Valley, most of the rain will happen in the morning hours and hopefully it’s more rain than lightning for the Island Lake region. 

    We’ll still be dealing with a few thunderstorms in the afternoon before the low pulls away to the east. Skies clear quickly on Friday evening. 

    Saturday of the long weekend straightens up nicely with sunny skies and highs in the mid 20s.

  • Weather Journal for August 29th

     

    Here in the south, another warm day is on the way Tuesday. We’ll get to 29 degrees before the wind shifts to the northwest in the afternoon.

    In the north, we have an air quality advisory in effect from Swan River and The Pas across to Island Lake and Gillam and everything in between. 

    There are some local fires in Manitoba but the smoke across the central part of the province is from fires in eastern Saskatchewan. Winds shift easterly on Wednesday so conditions should improve slightly. 

    It’s a little cooler in the south on Wednesday but still sunny and still above the seasonal normal. Thursday warms up again (27 degrees) with the help of a gusty south wind. 

    Friday brings the next weather maker with mainly cloudy skies and a strong chance for showers and thunderstorms.  Friday will also be a windy day.
