Windy, grey day not exactly patio weather

Curse that north wind!

Everything was going great, weather-wise, until the wind shifted from the south to the north late Tuesday evening. Instead of waking up this morning to another glorious day of sunshine and summer-like temperatures, Winnipeggers were greeted by a mainly cloudy sky, a north wind — 30 km/h gusting to 50 — and a temperature of only about 5 C.

Environment Canada says it will get better — the sky was expected to clear later this morning and the temperature climb to a respectable 14 C. But that’s still four degrees below the normal daytime high for this time of the year, and a far cry from Tuesday’s official high of 25.5 C.

The short-range forecast is for more of the same for the next few days, with mainly sunny skies and daytime highs in the low to mid teens and night-time lows of between 2 C and 5 C.

Saturday looks to be a chilly one, with an anticipated high of only 6 C under sunny skies. But on Sunday it starts to warm up again, with an expected high of 15 C.

And here’s something to look forward to. Environment Canada says things should really start cooking next week, with highs of 28 C under sunny skies for both Monday and Tuesday.
