    I was expecting temps to fall this afternoon but that has already happened. As I write this, we are at -7 and will likely stay close to that number through this sunny and rather gusty afternoon. 

    Speaking of gusty, the winds were extreme overnight as the cold front went through. There were wind warnings in place for most of the Red River Valley. Those have ended now. Winds are still strong, just not quite 90km/h. 

    We are in the land of reverse temperature trends this week. Another one happens tonight as temps rise to -2 or -3 by 8am Wednesday. 

    Temp Trend into Wednesday Morning

    Wednesday will be a generally cloudy day with another mild afternoon at +2. Expect a band of rain/wet snow to push through the Red River Valley in the late afternoon and early evening. It'll also be quite windy for a couple of hours in the afternoon.

    Do you get the feeling we are going to pay for this sometime soon? Another very mild week is in store across the south while snow falls again in the north. 

    Another clipper cycles through the eastern prairies today and tonight and track brings the snow to the north and warmth to the south. 

    There’s a snowfall warning in effect for Brochet, Lynn Lake, Thompson, and east from there into Shamattawa and York regions. 15-25cm will fall in the next 24 hours. 

    Back in the south, we clear later Monday evening after the rain showers, then cloud over again before morning on Tuesday. 

    Tuesday starts with a few flurries in the morning but the afternoon is a sunny one with a falling temperature and  a gusty NW wind. 

    Daytime highs from Wednesday through Sunday are all slightly above zero. 

    Expect a brief blast of light snow on Wednesday evening.

    Enjoy your sunny Saturday with a pleasant -3 in the afternoon here across the south. 

    We may see a flurry or two early on Sunday morning, otherwise, expect a sun/cloud mix on Sunday with a high of -3. 

    We seem to be in a three day cycle of Alberta Clippers. Another one moves through the province on Monday. 

    We get warm again on Monday and there will be a mix of precipitation that may include freezing rain. Too early to tell at this point. 

    The rest of next week is mild when compared to seasonal averages. No big snow in my forecast.

    Once the rain moved through early this morning, the clouds have broken up in the warm sector of the low. 

    If you like the milder and sunny conditions, quick, get outside! Temps will be falling this afternoon as winds shift to the northwest and get gusty behind the cold front. 

    There is a slight chance of an evening flurry, then further clearing tonight leading to a sunny Saturday with a pleasant -3 in the afternoon. 

    We may see a flurry or two early on Sunday morning, otherwise, expect a sun/cloud mix on Sunday with a high of -3.

    It’s a little brighter out there than I expected for the early part of the day. Don’t get used to it. Clouds will thicken up as temps continue to rise into the evening hours. 

    We have warnings in place for 10-15cm of snow in the Thompson region and northwest Manitoba, and a freezing rain warning issued for central Manitoba. 

    That icy warning is for The Pas region across the northern end of the Interlake and over to Berens River and Poplar River to the east. There is a small risk for freezing rain or drizzle here in the south this evening as well. (See previous post) 

    By the time we get to Friday morning, temps will be above zero (+2 to +4) here in the south and we’ll be into some rain showers for the morning commute. 

    Futurecast showing the wet Friday morning conditions

    As temps fall in the afternoon, there is a chance for some of that rain to change to wet flurries late Friday.  

    Winds also get strong Friday afternoon as the temperature is diving. Some highways could be slick late in the day. 

    Saturday is a bright day with a seasonal high of -3. Expect a sun/cloud mix on Sunday with a high of -2.

    The light snow we expected here in the Red River Valley (and south), will continue to let up through the early afternoon. Cloud will gradually break up this evening. 

    Radar and Satellite at 12:50p.m. Snow moves south.

    Thursday is another cloudy day and I’m tracking another mild, messy and windy clipper on track for Thursday night and Friday. 

    It’ll start with a chance of freezing rain Thursday evening, then drop some rain Friday morning. Temps will be warmest in the morning on Friday, then drop in the afternoon with a chance for wet flurries and gusty winds later in the day.

    Highway travel Friday night could be affected by this system. I’ll watch carefully and keep you all posted. 

    Saturday is likely the next time we’ll need sunglasses here in the southeast.

    There is another quick moving little disturbance headed our way for Wednesday. Expect more cloud cover than sun and a quick 2-3cms of snow in the afternoon here in the southeast. Not much wind with this one. 

    I’m tracking another one of these mild, messy and very windy clipper son track for later in the week. 

    It’ll start with a chance of freezing rain Thursday evening and bring some rain Friday early, then snow and wind gusts to 70km/h on Friday later in the day.

    Looking back at that clipper that moved through yesterday and we picked up 12 cm in Flin Flon and Grand Rapids as expected, but the bigger story was the wind across the south and the poor visibility due to blowing snow last evening. 

    The highest recorded wind gust was in Pilot Mound at 98km/h. Brandon had a gust at 95km/h and Winnipeg’s peak gust was 74km/h. 

    Winds will continue to drop off through the day today under a fairly sunny sky and a high of -7 in the capital. Brandon only reaches -10 this afternoon. 

    In the north, we still have a blizzard warning in effect for the rest of the day. Winds are gusting to 90km/h along the Hudson Bay coast. 

    There is another quick moving little disturbance headed our way for Wednesday. Expect more cloud cover than sun and a quick 2-3cms of snow in the afternoon here in the southeast. Not much wind with this one.
