A hot and sunny Canada Day on tap.. thunderstorms possible Monday
It's going to be a hot and sunny day for Canada Day celebrations in Winnipeg and southern Manitoba Sunday. Temperatures are expected to hit the 30C mark Sunday afternoon under blazing sunshine and light winds, so don't forget the hat and sunscreen if you're out! Fortunately, humidity levels will be tolerable with afternoon dewpoints in the mid teens expected. By late Sunday, thunderstorms are expected to fire up over southern Sakatchewan, possibly severe. These storms are expected to track across southeast Saskatchewan into southwest Manitoba Sunday night into early Monday, before weakening somewhat as they push into the Red River valley by midday Monday. Additional thunderstorms are possible later Monday over southern Manitoba depending on how much morning activity clears. Sunny and hot weather is expected to return Tuesday before another threat of thunderstorms moves in Wednesday.
