Sunny skies just west of Winnipeg..
Satellite images reveal an interesting contrast in weather over the Red River valley today. Gusty southerly winds are maintaining a feed of low level cloud along the Red River valley including Winnipeg which is resulting in overcast skies and temperatures that are struggling to reach freezing. However just to the west of the Red River (west of an Elie-Gretna line), skies are sunny, which has allowed temperatures to climb to +3 in Portage and +1 in Morden. The good news is that winds in the Red River valley are expected to shift into the west tonight, which will clear out this low cloud and also allow temperatures to climb above freezing. This will lead us into a much more pleasant day Friday with sunny skies, lighter winds from the west, and temperatures of +2 to +5C. Let the melting begin!
