If you do not like the heat, I suggest you enjoy today while you can! Nothing but sun and light winds today with a high around 25-26°C.
Mother Nature cranks up the thermostat starting tomorrow as a southerly flow returns. Highs around 30-31°C are expected. Humidity will also be on the increase, but will not be extremely high just yet. There is the risk for an isolated shower or storm late in the day, but the risk is not very significant.
A strong southerly flow sets up ahead of a low pressure system in central Manitoba on Friday. Very warm air will be moving in, allowing for highs around 31-34°C in the RRV. This, combined with dewpoints close to 20°C, will give humidex values near 40. Perhaps good news to some, winds will be strong out of the south up to 40 km/h, which may make it a tad easier to cool off.
The first main severe threat will be on Friday as a strong cold front is expected to slice through southern Manitoba. Severe thunderstorms are likely with this feature, with all modes of severe weather possible. Stay tuned in the comments below for updates in the next couple days.
Slightly cooler conditions are possible on Saturday behind the front, with highs in the high 20's. The ''cooler'' conditions will be short-lived as hot and humid weather returns by Sunday. More thunderstorm chances may come early next week, but it is too early to be more specific than that.
