Plenty of sunshine, temperature to soar today

  • Print

Monday’s unseasonably warm weather brought Winnipeggers out of their homes in droves, and today’s forecast should do the same.

Environment Canada says today should be a carbon copy of Monday, with oodles of sunshine, relatively light southwest winds (20 km/h) and a high of 26 C.

That’s three-tenths of a degree warmer than Monday, and eight degrees higher than the norm for this time of the year.

But there’s an old saying that all good things must come to an end, and the summer-like weather of the last few days is no exception. The wind is expected to shift to the north late this evening, which will bring cooler weather to southern Manitoba for Wednesday.

Environment Canada says the temperature will struggle to climb to 14 C under mainly cloudy skies. And while that strong north wind — 30 km/h gusting to 50 — should start to clear out the clouds in the afternoon, that will also pave the way for the temperature to plummet to the freezing mark overnight Wednesday.

Thursday should bring a return to sunny skies, but a daytime high of only 11 C. And it’s further downhill from there, with periods of rain and a high of 13 C on Friday, and a mere 7 C on Saturday.

The good news is that the sunshine should return on Saturday, and by Sunday the temperature should climb back up to 20 C, with more of the same for Monday.
