Another thing I want to mention was the supercell storm just south of the border last night. The storm dumped what appears to be baseball sized hail just south of Emerson as seen in this photo. The storm then dropped a tornado into Minnesota, just south of the Canadian border. This video possibly shows this tornado.
For today, showers with embedded thunderstorms are expected to begin sometime after 10:30 am in Winnipeg and end in the afternoon. Showers may be heavy at times, especially in storms. Even after the main band passes through, the chance for showers and pop-up storms remain for the remainder of the day. A good 5-10 mm, more in storms, could fall today.
A fairly cloudy start to tomorrow with possibly some patchy fog. Clearer skies for the afternoon and we should reach around 17°C or so, seasonal for this time of year.
The warmup begins on Monday with nothing but sun and highs around 23°C or so. Similar on Tuesday with highs around 24-25°C. The warm conditions are expected to continue throughout the entire week and possibly even into next weekend. This will make for a fantastic end to September and will coincide with the leaf-colour change to create some wonderful fall-photo opportunities. This will also be good news for farmers who need warm and dry weather. For the Winnipeg area, this will extend the growing season later than normal. The 1981-2010 normal first frost at the airport is September 24, but we'll be pushing it much later this year. We likely wont get our first frost until October this year.
