Brief warmup.. then cooler with rain (or even snow!) possible by end of week
After a cool gloomy weekend, the weather will be getting a little brighter and warmer over the first half of this week. Clouds will give way to sunshine today which will allow temperatures to get to the 10 degree mark. Tuesday should be dry with sunshine mixing with some high cloud ahead of a weak disturbance moving through southern SK. On Wednesday a stronger storm system will track through the central Prairies bringing an increasing southerly flow over southern MB with temperatures climbing into the mid teens over the RRV, possibly hitting 20 degrees over SW MB. On Thursday, the storm system will drag a cold front through southern MB, bringing cooler air back into the province by the end of the week. This frontal zone will stall south of the US border late in the week through the weekend, with several impulses moving along the frontal zone that may threaten rain over the Red River valley Friday into the weekend. In fact, the air will be cold enough that rain may change to wet snow over higher elevations of SW MB. Cooler than normal weather is expected into next week.
