Aaaaah-gust starts on refreshing note..

After another 3 days of high heat and humidity with dewpoints in the low to mid twenties, a cold front pushed through southern MB early this morning ushering in a much more comfortable airmass to start the month of August. Northwest winds are bringing in much drier air from the west, with dewpoints down to 10C over western Manitoba and single digits over Saskatchewan. This will result in much more comfortable conditions for the next few days with seasonably warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine. Long range models are indicating generally above normal temperatures for the first half of August over the southern Prairies with no signs yet of a major pattern change towards cooler or wetter conditions.

  1. Yes, it is a major relief. Dew point is down to 9 here now!! Yesterday, they were as high as 24. Haven't seen a dew point this low in a long time. It will allow for some very nice nighttime temperatures. No A/C humming the next couple days at my house.
