Dry seasonable weather this week.. turning unsettled next week?
The dry weather we've enjoyed for the past 3 weeks will continue this week, with an upper ridge blocking any large weather systems from affecting southern Manitoba. After an exceptionally wet late summer, the taps were finally shut off in late September with only 2.0 mm of rain recorded in Winnipeg in the past 3 weeks (since September 25th) Long range models are indicating a breakdown in the upper ridge by early next week, resulting in cooler and more unsettled conditions moving into southern MB for the last week of October.
