Cold start to the day.. temperatures moderating this week
It's a cold start to the day this morning across the Red River valley with early morning temperatures near or below the minus 30C mark. Winnipeg airport was sitting at -28C at 5 am while the coldest reading of -34C was found in Pinawa. Luckily, winds are light this morning so wind chills are not significant. Temperatures will rise into the mid minus teens today under partly sunny skies, with more moderate temperatures near minus 10C for Thursday and Friday. The good news is that temperatures will continue to climb over the weekend into next week with temperatures near or slightly above the normal high of -7C for this time of year. In addition, conditions look fairly dry over the next few days, with no major systems affecting southern Manitoba with strong winds or significant precipitation. So we'll have to put up with one more day of cold weather today... then things are looking up!
