This week of wonderful weather in Winnipeg will continue through today.

Environment Canada is calling for mainly cloudy skies this morning before the sun starts to poke through this afternoon. Once that happens, expect a daytime high of 8 C, a temperature well above the seasonal normal of -2 C.

Today will be a windy one, too, with a south breeze 20 km/h increasing to 40 km/h around noon. Look for gusts to hit 60 km/h, so hang on to your hat. Tonight’s low is expected to drop down to -2 C.

There is a 60 per cent chance of flurries in the forecast for Saturday, but those won’t start to fall until the evening. For the annual Santa Claus Parade, which makes its way through downtown Winnipeg at 5 p.m., expect temperatures to hover around the 4 C mark before things start to cool off.

On Sunday, expect a 60 per cent chance of flurries and a high of -4 C.
