Warm weather to continue through Thanksgiving weekend
The beautiful Indian summer weather of the past week will continue through the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend, with afternoon temperatures in the low to mid 20s through Monday.. some 10-15 degrees above normal for this time of year. That will give Winnipeg 8 straight days of temperatures in the 20s so far this month, doubling the number of 20C days we had all of September. The summerlike weekend this year is in sharp contrast to last year's Thanksgiving weekend weather which was marked by an early snowfall over southern Manitoba, including 10 cm in Winnipeg and a whopping 50 cm of lake effect snow near Lac Du Bonnet.

Last year we had that snowstorm and then all the snow melted and we got nice weather all of the rest of October and November!ReplyDelete
Maybe this year we get the nice weather now and Pay for it later on in October and next month!
The temperature has sky-rocketed in Steinbach this afternoon. Temperature is already 25.5C, with another 3-3.5 of heating to come. The question is how hot will it get...27, 28, 29? My bet would be on 27 at this point, but we'll see what happens.ReplyDelete
Looks like the high at my house today will stand at +27.3C, a full 14 degrees above normal!ReplyDelete
Well that was bizarre.. a brief sunshower here in Charleswood at 4:39 pm.. big rain drops coming out of some mid level clouds.. an otherwise perfect day out there today..ReplyDelete
It's good to see you are finally getting a good spell of sunny, warm and dry weather after your wet September. Thanks too for sharing at least a couple of your 20 C readings with us in Southern Ontario.ReplyDelete
Looking at tomorrow's forecast high of 14 C and think....man this is chilly!ReplyDelete
Oh ya! It is still above normal!
We have just been spoiled so much as of late!
A humidex reading of 25C as ofReplyDelete
Never thought I would be talking about Humidex in Mid - October!
Maybe I'm jinxing this wonderful October weather by asking this, but what is the record for the driest October in Wpg?? Cant believe I'm asking this considering the monsoons of September.ReplyDelete
Looks like a reality check coming this weekend!ReplyDelete
Back to normal weather and not all this above normal we have been spoiled with!
Looks like a Greenland block setting up for next week which will spell cooler air spilling into the region every few days!ReplyDelete
