But the mild weather this week will be a welcome sign that spring weather is finally arriving in southern MB, something residents here didn't think would ever happen this year, even as recently as a week ago. Temperatures in Winnipeg will be climbing to the +2 or +3C mark Sunday and an even warmer +4C for Monday as we get a westerly flow of mild air from Western Canada, where temperatures reached the low teens in southern Alberta today including +12C in Calgary. Temperatures will cool off slightly Tuesday and Wednesday before another surge of above freezing temperatures moves in for Thursday. Slightly colder weather is excepted for the weekend into next week with temperatures near or slightly below seasonal values which are now around -3C for daytime highs, and -13C for lows. All in all, a nice stretch of weather coming up this week for winter weary Winnipeggers. Enjoy it.. we deserve it!
