Warm today, but colder this evening

  • Print

In terms of weather, the next 48 hours will feature a little bit of everything.

Environment Canada’s forecast for Winnipeg and the surrounding area is calling for a 30 per cent chance of flurries and a beautiful high of -2 C today. The south wind 30 km/h will switch to the northwest 30 km/h during the morning and the temperature will start to fall to around -8 C this afternoon.

The normal high this time of year is -12 C.

Enjoy it while you can, because things will start to turn this evening.

Tonight, look for snow starting around midnight. The low is expected to drop to -16 C with a wind chill value in the -26 range.

The snowy conditions should continue into Saturday morning and early afternoon. The wind will be blowing from the north 40 km/h gusting to 60 km/h in the afternoon. Saturday’s high is only expected to reach -25 C (-39 wind chill).

This bitter cold will stay with us through the rest of the 2013 calendar, as well, with daytime highs languishing around the -28 C mark into the New Year.
