Record warm day signals end of mild spell..

The unseasonably mild weather of the past few days peaked over Winnipeg and the Red River valley today when temperatures soared to record breaking values for Nov 22nd. In Winnipeg, the official high of 12.4C broke the previous record for the day of 9.7C set back in 1998, and also marked the latest date of reaching double digits in November. (prev record Nov 21 1904 11.1c) Further south, Emerson was the national hot spot with a high of 14.9C. Unfortunately the record breaking mild weather will be coming to an abrupt end as much colder weather moves in tonight. Snow is possible in Winnipeg by Thursday afternoon into Thursday night although it appears the bulk of the snow from this next system will be falling north of Winnipeg through the interlake and central MB areas.
