The period will feature bouts of unsettled weather. Temperatures are forecast to hit the low twenties late this week and into the weekend but no significant warm-ups are expected. Low pressure system is in North Dakota late this morning with the steadiest rains south of the border up into far southwestern Manitoba. There is a good chance of showers here today along with a northeast wind and a high of 15.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy with a low of 7. System pushes east with rain continuing to fall in North Dakota. A few showers are possible in our region. Total amounts of a quarter to half an inch since last night are possible, especially for areas very close to the US border. There is a slight chance of a shower tomorrow morning but the sky will clear heading into the afternoon. The forecast high is 20.

Tomorrow night looks like a nice one for us with a mostly clear sky and a low of 8 degrees. Dry weather should be the story for the rest of the week with southern Manitoba underneath a high pressure system. Thursday features mostly sun and a high of 21. More sun expected on Friday with the high reaching 22. A shower or thunderstorm is possible on Friday night.

Ridge shifts east on the weekend as a low pressure system tracks into the province. That will set the stage for some showers in the region on Saturday and Sunday. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms on Saturday but instability is in question. Daily highs around 20 are anticipated for both days this weekend. System should be off to our east heading into next week. For Monday, expect mostly sun and a high of 22.

 

A few sunny days are expected in southwestern Manitoba once the current system moves out. That will allow for a good period of drying in the region before the next threat of precipitation on the weekend.
