Hot week ahead as heat wave builds over western Canada
A massive upper ridge over western North America is producing some of the hottest weather in years over parts of the western US, and some of this heat will be spreading across western Canada and the Prairies this week. BC and Alberta will see the hottest weather over the Canada Day weekend before the heat spreads east over the eastern Prairies during the upcoming week. For Winnipeg, sunny warm weather will prevail today and Canada Day with temperatures in the upper 20s along with light winds and comfortable humidity. The heat starts turning up Tuesday and Wednesday as temperatures climb into the low 30s under sunny skies. A weak front may bring some scattered thunderstorms by Thursday and Friday, with slightly cooler weather expected over the weekend.
