Thaw coming to an end.. colder weather on the way
After another mid winter mild spell that featured thawing temperatures and rain, things will be cooling off this week as a colder airmass spreads over western Canada. Preceding the cooldown will be a fast moving clipper system that may bring a coating of snow (Tr - 3 cm) Tuesday night into early Wednesday across Winnipeg/srn MB. Temperatures will be dropping behind the system for Thursday into the weekend, with temperatures more seasonable for late February (normal high -7, low -17C) That will be good news for outdoor enthusiasts and winter events such as the Festival du Voyageur which has had to cancel several outdoor events due to the mild springlike weather. In addition, no major storm systems are expected through early next week over southern MB, so the colder weather should also be accompanied by dry and mainly sunny conditions. Good opportunity to finally wash that car again!
