Forecast for folkies: hot and clear today

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 8/7/2009 (4101 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

WINNIPEG - The first day of the Winnipeg Folk Festival will be as hot as the musical line-up.
Today’s forecast calls for lots of sun with a high of 26 and a UV index of very high.
Clouds are expected to move in tonight, however, with a chance of showers after midnight (let’s hope tonight’s closing act, Elvis Costello, can finish his performance before rain comes).
On Thursday, a few showers will end in the afternoon with a risk of a thunderstorm. Winds from the southwest will be 40 km/h with gusts as strong as 60 km/h. The high will be 22.
After that precipitation, though, the weather for the remaining days of the festival is expected to be sunny with highs about 20.
