Summer like Sunday!
Wow.. what a turnaround from the cold just a couple days ago. Temperatures soared to a surprisingly warm 30 degrees in Winnipeg this afternoon, with a gusty southwest wind aiding in the warmup. At 3 pm the temperature at Winnipeg airport shot up to 30 degrees (29.9C officially) while the humidity dropped to 17% as the dewpoint went from 10 to 2c. Almost desert-like air! What a nice surprise as I thought we were done with 30C temperatures for the year. For the record, last year we had our last 30C temperature on Sept 15th, so we went one day better this year!
