Cold front Friday to usher in cooler airmass for first weekend of fall..
Things have cooled off over southern Manitoba this week as a northwest flow of cool air persists over the eastern Prairies. And things will get even cooler Friday into Saturday as a cold front pushes in from the north, ushering in the coolest airmass of the season so far, just in time for the first day of fall Saturday. The cold front is expected to push through Winnipeg from the north around midday Friday, accompanied by a few showers. Behind the front, northerly winds will increase gusting to 60 km/h, ushering in cooler air from the north with temperatures dropping into the single digits. In addition, the cool air over the 15C lake waters will generate bands of lake effect showers off Lake Winnipeg, and Lake Manitoba. Below normal temperatures are expected into the weekend before a gradual warming trend next week.
