Chilly today.. frosty tonight...
No, that's not a Wendy's menu order.. that's the weather forecast for Winnipeg and southern Manitoba for the next 24 hours as a northerly flow of cool air spreads over the province. Gusty north winds today will keep temperatures only in the 12c range this afternoon, with cloudy skies and occasional sprinkles or drizzle from weakening off lake streamers. For tonight, high pressure will be building over southern MB, bringing clearing skies and diminishing winds.. perfect conditions for frost formation overnight. In fact, much of southern MB will see its first frost of the season by Tuesday morning with overnight lows of zero to -3C expected. The exception will be areas near and to the west of the MB lakes which will be saved from frost by the warm lake waters. Patchy cloud cover will also save some localities from frost tonight. Tuesday looks like a nice day with sunshine mixing with a few clouds, lighter winds, and afternoon temperatures of 12-15C.
