Cooling off this week as kids head back to school
The traditional last weekend of summer ended up on a sunny and warm note over Winnipeg with temperatures rising to 29C for Labour Day Monday .. some 8C above normal for early September. But the summerlike temperatures will be on their way out this week as a large storm system over the northern Prairies pushes cooler air towards southern Manitoba over the next few days. Tuesday will see a mix of sun and cloud with highs of 24C, about 5C cooler than today but still seasonably warm for early September. Tuesday night, a cold front will track across southern Manitoba bringing a chance of showers, along with a push of cooler air for Wednesday and the rest of the week. Temperatures will be noticeably cooler as the kids head back to school, with autumn like highs in the upper teens to near 20C through Friday. Sunny and warmer conditions are forecast for the upcoming weekend.
