Long awaited spell of sunshine and drier weather..
After 10 days of generally cool, cloudy and unsettled weather.. the weather pattern will finally be shifting to a drier and warmer trend, at least for the next few days. Unsettled weather will be moving into the Great lakes while an upper ridge of high pressure builds over the western Prairies by the end of the week. That will allow a much needed break from the frequent storm systems passing through the southern Prairies. After a chilly night tonight with patchy frost in areas, Wednesday should be the nicest day we've seen in a while with plenty of sunshine and temperatures approaching 20C, a mark we haven't hit in Winnipeg since the 23rd. Even milder weather is forecast Thursday with sunny skies and highs in the low 20s. Friday may see some increasing cloud and a small chance of showers, but generally most places should be rainfree with drier and warmer conditions expected into the weekend. More organized shower activity is possible later Sunday into Monday as a system tracks across the Prairies.
