Above normal warmth to end by week's end..
It's been an incredibly mild run over southern MB with above normal temperatures every day since Dec 8th .. that's 32 consecutive days above normal in Winnipeg as of today. However, a major change in the weather pattern is expected by the end of the week as a strong storm system moves across the Prairies. A strong push of Arctic air is forecast to flood across the Prairies behind this system with temperatures of minus 20 or lower moving into Alberta by Wednesday.. Saskatchewan by Thursday and Manitoba by Friday. This will be the first significant push of Arctic air over the Prairies in over a month which will feel especially cold given the prolonged warmth of the past 4 to 5 weeks. The Arctic airmass is expected to continue into next week, so be prepared for some real winter weather to finally arrive..
