Cool and unsettled rest of week.. turning sunnier and warmer over weekend into next week..
Cool and cloudy weather will dominate southern MB through Friday as a stubborn area of low pressure over NW Ontario circulates clouds and northwest winds over southern MB. As a result, temperatures will be some 10 degrees below normal for this time of year, which are now approaching 20C for daytime highs. Little additional precipitation is expected through Friday, although there may be some light showers or drizzle from time to time, with even a stray snowflurry possible Friday morning. The good news is that models are indicating a significant clearing tend for the weekend into next week, with temperatures warming to near or even above normal values next week. That will translate to temperatures in the 20s over southern MB along with more prolonged sunshine that we've been seeing of late, and gusty south winds at times, some welcome news that will help start drying out the excessively moist soil conditions over southern MB. We need it..
