Dry and mild start to the week.. turning colder with some snow likely by Thursday
Generally pleasant and dry weather is expected over southern Manitoba over the next few days as a series of low pressure systems passes to the north of the region. This will bring a flow of above normal temperatures over the south with daytime highs generally above freezing today through Wednesday. Warmest temperatures will be over far southeast MB which has minimal snow cover, with highs of +5 to +8C possible over the next few days. By Wednesday, scattered showers are possible ahead of a low pressure system that will be developing over southern SK. This system will drag a cold front through southern Manitoba by Thursday with some snow possible as colder air works in behind it. This doesn't look like a major system at this point, with snowfall amounts of 2-5 cm being forecast by the long range models along with gusty north winds. Still, it will likely be enough to bring wintery driving conditions over southern MB once again, after a period of relatively benign weather. Until then, enjoy the nice weather for the next few days!
