A look ahead..

A weak disturbance over the Dakotas will bring increasing clouds today across the RRV with scattered showers developing later today into tonight along with a risk of a thunderstorm. The unsettled weather will linger into Friday before drier conditions move in Saturday. Sunday looks like a potentially stormy day with a system passing through the Dakotas possibly bringing some heavier thunderstorms over southern MB, especially by Sunday night. The active weather should move out Monday as we close out the holiday weekend. The warmest days are expected to be Saturday and Sunday with highs approaching the 30 degree mark once again.

Warmer weather ahead

Sunnier and warmer weather is expected over southern MB over the next few days, as a cool unstable airmass over southern MB finally moves out of the area. After a cloudy start this morning (with showers over the southern Red River valley), skies will begin to clear out by this afternoon with temperatures of 27C forecast. Sunday looks fabulous with plenty of sunshine and highs of 28C. The warm weather is expected to continue into Monday with highs possibly reaching the 30C mark before a weak cold front pushes through southern MB late Monday into Monday night that may trigger some scattered thunderstorms. Slightly cooler but pleasant sunny weather is forecast through midweek before warmer weather returns for the end of the week into next weekend.

Rob's Obs on the move

Please note that my Rob's Obs weather station will be down for awhile as I relocate to my new place. It will take a few days to re-site and reinstall my station, but I hope to have it up and running in a few days barring any complications. In the meantime, Rob's Obs website will display current weather data from the Pacific Junction School in Charleswood, and Rob's blog is always there for discussion (although my time will be limited to join in). Here's hoping for good moving weather!

Severe thunderstorms likely this afternoon/evening..

A slow moving cold front crossing southern MB today will be the focus for severe thunderstorm development this afternoon into this evening. Storms are expected to fire up over the Red River valley this afternoon moving eastward toward the Ontario border by evening. Large hail and damaging winds will be the main threat, with isolated tornadoes possible with stronger storms. Stay tuned..
