John Sauder, CBC's meteorologist in Manitoba, keeps track of weather moving across the province.

  • John's Weather Journal for October 11

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • We are firmly in the sunshine for the next few days here in the south. Even the north will enjoy sunny skies and beautiful fall colours through today and Thursday. 

    It’s breezy today but winds quiet down on Thursday and temps are close to the seasonal normal high of 14 across the south. 

    Friday, we warm up to 16 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 slight chance for a few sprinkles of rain Saturday afternoon followed by a cooler Sunday.

    The showers are moving east today, gradually. The cloud sticks around in the Red River Valley for the remainder of the afternoon though. 

    As we head into the evening, expect a few sprinkles then a cloudy overnight. That cloud doesn’t really break up until mid morning on Wednesday., earlier in the west. 

    The week will generally dry out as we head toward the long weekend. 

    Thursday and Friday look fairly bright with temps in the mid teens. Saturday warms up to 18 degrees with a sun/cloud mix. 

    Looking ahead, by Thanksgiving Monday, we are dealing with single digit highs. That’s what I call a “reality check”.

  • It’s interesting watching the weather across the prairies today as Alberta gets its first real snowfall of the season. That low is also affecting Manitoba but we are in the warmer sector of the low. 
    As the morning rain showers continue to push off to the north, we’ll start to see some breaks in the cloud cover this afternoon. That’ll help us get to 17 degrees in Winnipeg. The normal high is now 14.

    Tuesday brings the cloud back over the region with at least a chance of showers here in the Red River Valley. There’s a higher chance for rain southeast of the city. 

    The week will generally dry out as we head into the second half. Wednesday is a little cool at 13 but Thursday and Friday look fairly bright with temps in the mid teens. Saturday warms up to 18 degrees with a sun/cloud mix.
