Looks like a beautiful Saturday shaping up over Southern MB and the Red River valley with plenty of sunshine and a balmy southwest flow sending temperatures up to the 25C mark in many localities including Winnipeg. The sunny skies, low humidity and dry soil conditions along with a favourable southwest flow will make for ideal conditions for a warm day, with temperatures of 27C possible along the western Red River valley from Portage through Morden to Gretna and Emerson. Should be a beauty for enjoying the outdoors.. although area farmers are likely not enjoying this sunny dry weather. We sure could use some rain to start replenishing soil moisture levels which are getting pretty low in areas. After another sunny dry day Sunday, it appears that southern MB may see some rainfall on Monday as a disturbance passes through the area with showers and possible thunderstorms. Models are indicating a general rainfall of 5 to 15 mm over southern MB, with locally higher amounts possible in thunderstorms. Not a drought buster.. but anything will help at this point!
