Blustery Saturday to give way to pleasant Sunday
It was a blustery start to the weekend over the Red River valley with strong northerly winds gusting over 70 km/h at times along with mainly cloudy skies and temperatures in the upper teens (a peak gust of 80 km/h recorded at the Brady landfill weather station) The winds were associated with a strong push of cool air from northern Manitoba flooding southward. Winds will be diminishing this evening becoming light overnight along with clearing skies that will allow temperatures to drop into the single digits over much of southern MB, including Winnipeg where a low of +4C is forecast. After a chilly start, Sunday will be a much more pleasant day with bright sunny skies, lighter winds and afternoon temperatures rebounding into the low 20s. Conditions will be even warmer Monday as gusty south winds to 50 km/h push in a warm airmass with temperatures rising into the upper 20s along with sunny skies.
