After the deluge.. turning warm and dry through the end of September..
After Tuesday's soaking rains which brought 25 to 75 mm of rain to the RRV, conditions will be turning dry and warmer the rest of this week through the weekend and into next week. A large upper ridge of high pressure will build over the Prairies bringing a prolonged stretch of sunny dry and warm weather over central Canada over the next week or so, including southern Manitoba. After a frosty night tonight, temperatures will rebound into the mid teens Thursday with light winds, then into the mid 20s over the weekend as warmer air spreads in. Long range models are indicating the dry and warm weather should continue over southern Manitoba through the end of the month. Fall officially arrives this Friday, so it looks like a nice warm and dry start to autumn. Enjoy!

Any early indications on what this winter could be like??? Or is it too early yet??ReplyDelete
Could this be a repeat of this past winter???
I just thought I would mention that they have some very cool videos on NASA's website!
They have some very good time lapse videos from the international space station of thunderstorms and the northern lights! Check it out!
Go to this website for the impressive videos of thunderstorms and northern Lights from space!ReplyDelete
Heads up! MFW Weather Underground added radar data for Canada, complete with base velocity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9gkxT0WFJY#t=32s (until 0:46)ReplyDelete
Here's the reflectivity link for Woodlands: http://www.wunderground.com/radar/radblast.asp?ID=XWL&type=C0R
Dewpoints of 20C+ in Quebec (21C at the border with Vermont)...ReplyDelete
Unusually humid for this time of the year.
After such a dry summer could these rains be a sign that we will be getting a lot of show this winter?ReplyDelete
My birthday today! "16"ReplyDelete
Best weather too!
Happy Birthday Mike! Hope it was a good one!!ReplyDelete
What did you get for your birthday....maybe a rain gauge?????
Thanks for the bday wishes daniel and others. Answering your question I got a Weather almanac that I can use for seeing ahead even though that they aren't that accurate. I also got a cell phone from MTS a student plan. I also got a camera to capture memories and some summer storms. Even Armin Van buurens latest cd called mirage. So I had a very good bday.ReplyDelete
The weather looks nice for the weekend, I normally get t-storms on Sept 23rd days. But I take what we get! that sunrise this morn was good.
Well, what a nice stretch of weather were having for my birthday! All because of several high pressure systems to our south. any chances of breaking records today?ReplyDelete
Our records are still in the low thirties, so doesn't look like any records for WPG at least.ReplyDelete
thanks for letting me know, i assume our records will gradually fall as the winter nears.ReplyDelete
I'm moving on Friday....No internet from Thursday till the Monday of the next week!!!ReplyDelete
What ever am I going to do without Rob's blog for 4 days????? I gonna have my withdrawls....lol
Don't worry daniel.. doesn't look like a whole lot of weather to talk about this week. Good luck with the move!ReplyDelete
Good luck with the move! don't worry about the blog much as our storm season has ended, and not much in the way of weather over the next few weeks, except for the odd rainy day. TTYL.ReplyDelete
some nice isolated thunderstorms going on in southern ontario, as of this hour. It looks like its there turn. I read the forecast discussion from SPCO in ontario. there really isn't much potential for severe storms as they have been under cloud cover for most of the day, with relatively low cape values and bulk shear. So the weather isn't much different than what we have here except for a thunderstorm that hit london at 7EDT.ReplyDelete
Thanks everyone! I'm moving from Winnipeg (St.James) to.......(drum roll please), Downtown !!!!!ReplyDelete
Oh boy, I can hardly wait....
On the NWS Grand Forks home page there is talk that a Geomagnetic storm gave us a near miss,still some concern on the power grid in some areas!!
Stellar day out there today.. sunny blue skies, 25-27C temps, light winds, and beautiful fall colours coming out. Love the nice weather at this time of year!ReplyDelete
All the trees around my place are still green, and half the forest nearby as well. Can't believe it's almost October, and many trees have barely begun changing.ReplyDelete
EC Mentioning a risk for thunderstorms in the central regions of the province today as LI reaches -3 and CAPE Values at 200-300J/KG. I don't expect to see them become severe as the shear values lack, and the humidity will be somewhat low. The chance for storms for us comes this evening into tonight. I will have more details a little later, Stay tuned.ReplyDelete
Some Storms making an appearence on radar, one line drifting south towards us. a single cell drifting our way from the west. Maybe well see something in the next little bit.ReplyDelete
Didn't get below zero here where I am in south end. Got lucky =) frost on roofs, patchy on ground only.ReplyDelete
Rob when was the last beautiful September Warm & Dry ?ReplyDelete
September 2 years ago was hot even! Sure enjoying this one though, and October looks to be starting with great weather! Hope it lasts!ReplyDelete
Yes, Sept 2009 was the warmest September on record.. and was actually the warmest month of the whole year that year.
Nice to have the nice weather continue into early October.. staying above normal into next week. Not sure we'll see that high of 29C Sunday here in Winnipeg with warm front just to our south along US border. We may be in low 20s instead with an easterly wind unless front pushes north a little more. Mid to upper 20s more likely over southern RRV and ND. Still nice though..
beautiful weather ahead, although I think EC is going a little bit overboard with a forecast high of 29C on sunday, a little late for october.Ill look at the 850mb temps and see what I come up with. On the other side we need some rain to make sure we keep our soil healthy, the GEM Model is pointing to a significant rain system on thursday and friday. We might be able to see some thunderstorms as well depending on our temperature, looking on those days thur and fri highs of 26 and 25. So Ill keep everyone up to date including rob.ReplyDelete
