Summer's last hurrah?

Looks like a nice stretch of summerlike weather coming up to cap off the last unofficial weekend of summer. Balmy southwest winds and sunshine are boosting temperatures into the upper 20s today over southern MB, and we will likely be hitting the 30 degree mark Friday and Saturday before a cold front moves through Saturday night. Sunday will be a little cooler with highs in the low to mid twenties, but with sunshine and light winds, it should still be a nice day. A system passing through the Dakotas threatens a few showers by holiday Monday. All in all though, it looks like a nice end to summer!


  1. The Tornado near Grand Forks on Sunday was an F4..the damage was terrible as evidenced by the pictures on the Grand Forks National Weather Service site. Cars were tossed out into the middle of a field and some buildings were completely destroyed.

    Seems like we have a decent chance of some storms forming today. Although we dont have deep moisture, there is enough shear and warm advection to interact with a cool front lurking off to the north.


  2. Some pretty heavy downpours occurred thru parts of the city...but nothing at your station again. You can't seem to get under the right cloud!


  3. We got a few drops of rain around 3:30 pm.. but that's about it. I see local amounts of 2 to 5 mm with that line this afternoon.. but once again, we missed out in Charleswood!

  4. We're a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your site provided us with valuable info to work on. You've done a formidable job
    and our whole community will be thankful to you.

  5. Having read this I thought it was very informative.
    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this information together.

    I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and commenting.

    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
