One last warm blast Tuesday.. then turning sharply colder and unsettled Wednesday through the rest of the week..
It's going to be an interesting week of weather coming up over southern MB as a significant pattern change evolves by mid week. A intensifying low pressure system over southern Saskatchewan will track through central Manitoba Tuesday, bringing a strong southerly flow of warmer air over southern MB. Southerly winds will gust to 60 or 70 km/h over the Red River valley Tuesday including Winnipeg, which combined with the very dry conditions and low humidities will make for dangerous fire conditions. The gusty south winds will draw up warmer air with afternoon highs in the low to mid 20s.. some 10C above normal for this time of year. But that will be the end of 20C temperatures for awhile.. possibly the rest of the year. A sharp cold front will push through Wednesday morning with northerly winds bringing in much colder air into southern MB. Temperatures will struggle in the low teens Wednesday, falling into the single digits by evening along with a chance of some rain. Temperatures will remain in the single digits for highs Thursday into Thanksgiving weekend, with even a chance of some rain or wet snow over portions of the RRV Thursday into Friday morning. Enjoy the warm day Tuesday.. big changes are on the way this week!
