Looks like we'll finally be seeing some nice springlike temperatures today, with sunshine and a westerly breeze allowing temperatures to climb to 17C today in Winnipeg. The atmosphere should be a little more stable as well so we shouldn't see much in the way of convective afternoon showers developing like the past few days. All in all, a nice Easter Sunday on tap. On Monday, a "back door" cold front is forecast to slip into the Interlake region as a cooler high pressure system moves across Northern Manitoba. This will bring cooler temperatures to the interlake regions Monday, while mild weather prevails over the far south with temperatures climbing to 20C for the first time this season, especially over the southern RRV. There is some difference in opinion on where this back door cold front will lie Monday as some models suggest the front will push south of Winnipeg, bringing northeast winds and slightly cooler temperatures for us (around 15C) Other guidance suggests the front will lie just to our north, allowing temperatures to rise to the 20C mark in Winnipeg. We'll have to see who's right, but the 21C forecast for Winnipeg Monday will be in jeopardy if that front settles a bit further south.
Tuesday looks mild again with temperatures in the upper teens with generally dry weather and near normal temperatures (around 15C) expected for the upcoming week. Long range guidance is hinting of a possible storm system over southern Manitoba by next weekend.
