The week ahead.. cool start with a hot and stormy finish

The weather in southern Manitoba this week will see a transition from a cool fall-like start to a more summerlike pattern by the end of the week, complete with increasing heat and humidity as well as the risk of potentially severe thunderstorms by Thursday or Friday.  Highs today will only top out around 19C, some 5C below normal for early June, but by Friday, Winnipeg and the RRV could be looking at temperatures close to 30C. The increasing heat and humidity along with a couple of weather systems tracking across southern Manitoba will lead to the development of scattered thunderstorms, some of which may be severe. Stay tuned through the week as this developing weather situation evolves.
