A very mild start to the day today in Winnipeg... Temperatures rose to +2°C overnight with a high of 2.1°C here in South St Vital and also at the airport. There was even a bit of rain around 5 am. Unfortunately, a brisk northwest wind this morning will usher in some colder air, dropping temperatures to the mid minus single digits for the afternoon. Winds will calm somewhat this afternoon.
Another mild one tomorrow with temperatures above zero. Unfortunately, it does look a little cloudier than we would like. There may be a few breaks in the cloud at times though.
Unfortunately, the weather pattern takes a turn beginning Wednesday. Northerly winds will gradually bring some colder air back into the region. There will also be a chance of some snow throughout the day, but I'm not expecting major accumulations if we do get snow.
Temperatures really take a plunge beginning on Thursday. Some models do hint at a brief warmup on the weekend, but below normal temperatures should be dominant through to next week. Some -30°C lows cannot be ruled out on the coldest nights.
