A fantastic day today with temperatures above zero in almost all of southern Manitoba. Even Winnipeg airport has creeped above zero, reaching its warmest temperature in 2 months, since January 15. Warmer values inside city limits with highs between 4 and 7°C. Enjoy it while it lasts... colder weather returns tomorrow and Wednesday. Highs will be below zero, but it wont be an extreme cold by any means with highs remaining in the minus single digits. However, lows may dip below -20°C tomorrow night.
Warm air returns on Thursday with a high likelihood of above zero temperatures again. Highs will likely be similar to today's.
Some colder air moves in for the weekend. At this point, it appears we may lean towards more of a colder than normal trend next week as well (but not as extreme as what we've seen). There may also be a clipper system or two to watch for, with more snow possible to start next week. Details to come as the days get closer.
Normal highs next week will be in the -1°C to +2°C range and normal lows between -8°C and -10°C (1981-2010 normal).
