An early fall reality has set in for southern Manitobans. Highs over the next few days will be a good 10°C below normal for this time of year.
However, keep in mind we aren't having it as bad as in Alberta. 11.8 cm of snow fell in Calgary yesterday as afternoon temperatures hovered near 0°C. An additional 10-20 cm is expected tonight and tomorrow in the area! Highs will struggle to exceed much above the freezing mark today there.
Here in Winnipeg, we'll only reach about 10-11°C today, which sounds relatively balmy compared to out west. However, this will bring us quite close to the old record low maximum of 10.6°C in 1878 today. Will let you all know in the comments below this evening wether we broke the record or not. There could be a few breaks in the cloud this afternoon which could ruin the chance for a record if they do occur.
For tomorrow, very similar to today, except there will be a little bit more sun. Only expecting to reach around 10-11°C once again. Very similar on Thursday, except with once again a little bit more sun.
Frost isn't extremely likely tonight and tomorrow night. However, frost may be possible Friday morning. With clearing skies and lighter winds, temperatures could drop into the -1°C to +1°C outside the city and in the outskirts of the city. Patchy frost could be possible as a result. The potential will be clearer by Thursday. Within city limits in Winnipeg, frost should not be as big a worry due to the heat island effect which should keep our temperatures a few degrees warmer, especially close to downtown.
