January to end on windy mild note..
It's been a cold month.. with January averaging almost 3 degrees below normal. But the month will end on a mild note Saturday as a low pressure system tracking through the Interlake region draws mild air into southern MB. This system will push a warm front across southern MB later today into this evening bringing some light snow and even a risk of some brief freezing rain by midnight. Temperatures will begin to climb tonight as the warm air pushes in, reaching the freezing mark by morning in the Red River valley. On Saturday, mild conditions will prevail through midday with temperatures possibly reaching +1 or +2C under partly cloudy skies, before strong northwest winds of 50 to 70 km/h develop by afernoon, bringing cooler air into the area by the end of the day.
