Labour Day weekend outlook.. unsettled start, nice finish.
After a blast of late summer heat, the summer of 2013 will be winding down this weekend as we roll into September. The last weekend of the traditional summer will start off warm and humid Saturday, but things will become more unsettled as a cold front pushes across southern MB bringing a few showers and thunderstorms by the afternoon. This activity is expected to push across Winnipeg and the RRV Saturday afternoon into the evening, with brisk northwest winds ushering in cooler air Saturday night into Sunday. Sunday will see a return to sunshine, but temperatures will be noticeably cooler than the past 2 weeks with highs only around 20C, which is actually fairly close to normal for early September. This will set the stage for a beautiful end to the Labour Day weekend with sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 20s for holiday Monday. Generally above normal temperatures are expected to continue for the first week of September.
