Unsettled pattern coming to an end... brighter drier weather ahead..
The unsettled weather of the past two weeks will finally be giving way to a sunnier and drier pattern by Friday into the weekend, offering some much needed time to dry out from the recent damp and dreary weather. Winnipeg has not seen more than 2 rainfree days in a row since June 4-6th, with frequent showers and occasional thunderstorms dumping over 50 mm of rain in the past 2 weeks at Winnipeg airport, and over 70 mm at my Charleswood site. An upper ridge of high pressure is forecast to build over the Prairies over the weekend into next week which will finally take a stubborn storm track north of the southern Prairies, and also allow warmer air to push into our region. With increasing sunshine, temperatures should finally rebound back into the mid 20s over the weekend, with above normal temperatures possible next week.
