Super Sunday sets new record highs over southern Manitoba
It's Super Sunday today as the Giants take on the Patriots in the 46th Super Bowl in Indianapolis.. but the phrase could just as easily have described the weather in southern Manitoba today as sunny springlike conditions prevailed across the southern Prairies. In Winnipeg, temperatures soared to a daytime high of +6.8C, 17C above normal and just 0.4C off the day's record high of +7.2C set in 1963. Temperatures of +7 to +10C were recorded over the snowfree western RRV including Carman and Morden. At least 3 record highs were set in southern MB today including Melita (6.3C), Pilot Mound (+8.8C) and Fisher Branch (+5.6C) The mild weather will be short lived however as a cold front crosses southern MB overnight, ushering in more seasonable temperatures for Monday and Tuesday.
