The warm summer weather will continue through the remainder of the week as a strong upper-level ridge over the Western Prairies continues to produce warm, dry weather over Southern Manitoba.
Today will be another beautiful day with fairly light winds and a high near 28°C. Humidity will stay comfortable and there will be a slight chance of showers through southwest Manitoba north/northeastwards into the Interlake. The lack of any real boundaries should keep things sunny and dry in the Red River Valley. There will likely be a some afternoon clouds, but it will remain mainly sunny.
A clear night under the ridge will mean that things do cool off a bit; expect an overnight low near 13°C through the Red River Valley.
Thursday will be another sunny, warm day with a high in the upper 20’s and light winds. The primary difference will be a weak cold front that edges westwards towards the Interlake and Red River Valley. Little activity is expected with it, although by late in the afternoon there will be a slight chance for some isolated showers through the valley. There will be no threat of severe weather. Like Wednesday, it should be a mainly sunny day with just some scattered afternoon cloud.
Temperatures will drop down to the low-to-mid teens on Thursday night.
On Friday, a low pressure system tracking through Northern Manitoba pulls warmer air eastwards across the Prairies. Temperatures aloft will rise through the day and although our daytime high will be in line with the prior days, the warmer air will show itself on Friday night when overnight lows are some 3–5°C warmer than the past few nights. It looks like another pleasant day with highs in the upper 20’s, light winds and ample sunshine.
Overall the weekend looks beautiful. Temperatures will stay in the upper 20’s through the weekend with just a slight chance of showers or thunderstorms on Saturday. Winds will remain light. Summer continues!
