January to end on cold quiet note
Seasonably cold and quiet weather is on tap over southern Manitoba for the rest of the week into the weekend as high pressure over the Prairies blocks incoming weather systems. A brisk northwest flow of Arctic air today will diminish tonight into Thursday as a ridge of high pressure over Alberta builds into the Dakotas. This will result in more comfortable conditions Thursday and Friday with lighter winds and temperatures near normal. A weak trough of low pressure will move across southern MB on Saturday followed by a reinforcing shot of cold air for Sunday into early next week as another area of Arctic high pressure builds over the province. All in all, a pleasant end to January, which will finish about 4 or 5C above normal thanks to the spell of above normal temperatures the past 2 weeks.
