Milder week ahead.. and staying dry..
Milder weather will be returning to southern MB this week as the Arctic airmass of the past few days moves east. Temperatures will rebound to the minus 5 range today into Monday and Tuesday before rising towards the freezing mark by midweek. The main story will be the continued dryness with little or no precipitation expected the rest of the week as storm systems pass by well to the south or north of southern MB. Snowfall has been scarce this winter over the RRV, with no measurable snow so far this month and well below normal amounts over the winter. Snowfall in Winnipeg through Feb 11th this winter has totalled 48 cm, compared to a long term average of 75 cm by this time (64% of normal). Last year, we had already received 115 cm by early February leading up to a major spring flooding situation. (see photo above comparing a stretch of Saskatchewan Ave between this year and last year.
