With July in the books, August looks to continue our streak of beautiful weather as an upper-level ridge continues to produce stable, warm and mostly dry weather over Southern Manitoba.
It won’t take a lot of words to describe the weather over the next few days. Today will bring another sunny day that will most likely be the warmest so far this week with a high temperature approaching the 30°C mark. Clouds will roll in later in the afternoon ahead of a disturbance trundling down from the northwest Red River Valley overnight.
Tonight’s low temperature will bottom out near 15 or 16°C under partly cloudy skies. There could potentially be a few isolated showers through the Red River Valley through the overnight period, but the odds are definitely stacked against it happening.
Saturday looks like a pleasant day with mixed skies and a slight chance of showers in the afternoon through the overnight period again as a weak trough pushes through the region. Temperatures will climb into the mid–20’s for the daytime high and drop down towards low teens overnight.
Sunday will be another seasonal day with highs in the mid 20’s and overnight lows in the low teens. The day will be fairly sunny with some increasing afternoon cloud as a weak system slumps through southwestern Manitoba, bringing some shower activity to that area. Here in the Red River Valley we’ll likely remain dry, although at this point it looks like late in the day some shower activity may edge into the western Red River Valley.
None of the activity over the next few days is expected to be significant and the long-range outlook continues our seasonably warm and dry weather through much of the coming week.
