Skies finally cleared over Winnipeg early this morning after 8 straight days of clouds and gloomy weather. The cloud is still not that far away however this morning as the western edge of the cloud has moved just east of the city, with clouds persisting over southeastern Manitoba in areas like Steinbach and the Whiteshell. A disturbance in Saskatchewan will bring some cloud back in tonight into Sunday morning over the Red River valley, however this higher level cloud should clear out by Sunday afternoon.

Rob's Weekend Forecast for Winnipeg..

TODAY.. Morning fog patches with locally dense fog giving near zero visibility at times. Otherwise mainly sunny and a lot more pleasant today than recent days. Little or no wind. Highs around 14c.
TONIGHT.. Increasing clouds. Calm winds. Lows near zero.
SUNDAY.. Slight chance of a morning shower otherwise morning clouds giving way to sunshine. Light winds. Highs near 14C.


  1. What a nice weekend.. after such a dreary week, it sure was nice to get that sun. Plus there was no wind which made it feel that much warmer..

  2. Well we are back to clouds today (10/16)...but just barely. A strong feed of moisture coming all the way from Michigan and Ohio has backed into extreme southern Manitoba. But as is seen from the satellite images, areas from the interlake north are still in the sunshine. Temps are in the mid teens in central Manitoba

    All of the low clouds plaguing us have also kept overnite lows warm. Your station recorded its first frost (sub zero reading) only yesterday (10/15). A lot of the city has likely not seen a frost yet. That is quite surprising... usually we have had a hard freeze by now that nukes all the plant life etc.

  3. Rob,

    Could you make some comments about the moderate risk for severe storms in Kansas, Oklahoma tomorrow.

    Since our weather is boring right now maybe we could talk about something interesting.

  4. Looks like they were mainly hailers today in OK and KS.. with a few tornadoes in Missouri. Now we get to look forward to more rain over SE MB as this large storm system moves up over Minnesota. Could see 25-40 mm along the MB/ON border by Saturday.

  5. Oct 18th - Could be an interesting afternoon/evening across mid-Mississippi and Ohio valley today.. strong upper jet with a good diffluent flow aloft along with unseasonably warm and humid airmass over the area will give a line of severe thunderstorms to the area this afternoon into this evening. SPC has a moderate risk over the area, which may require an upgrade to high the way things are going. They've just issued a tornado watch for much of TN valley for this afternoon. Could be a significant tornado threat with initial discrete storms merging into a squall line by evening with damaging winds.

  6. keep us updated,

    with the moderate risk in the US and back home.
