A mixed bag of weather expected through the period. Some shower activity moved through last night associated with a weak wave now in Minnesota. For the rest of the day, expect a mix of sun and cloud and a high of 23. Clouds increase tonight ahead of a frontal boundary. There is a slight chance of showers overnight with a low of 12.

Frontal boundary moves into southwestern Manitoba tomorrow. There is a good chance of showers along with a southeast wind and a high of 19. Instability is slim to none and, as a result, no thunderstorms are in the forecast. Boundary progresses east tomorrow night with shower chances continuing. It's going to be mostly cloudy with a low of 12.

Sunday looks to be an unsettled day in southwestern Manitoba. Showers are possible with the high reaching 17. Instability is non-existent and that will preclude any thunderstorms once again. Warmer weather arrives early next week as a ridge of high pressure builds in. Hard to time shortwaves cresting the ridge could lead to periodic threats of precipitation. Monday features a slight chance of showers and a high of 24.

Summer-like pattern anticipated for the remainder of the period with ridging in place. Tuesday features mostly sun and a high of 25. We'll see a mix of sun and cloud on both Wednesday and Thursday with highs around 26 degrees. A shower or thunderstorm can't be ruled out on either day as hard to time waves ride up the ridge.

 

A somewhat gloomy weekend in store for us with showers likely. Those wanting summer-like warmth will enjoy what next week has to offer. Temperatures in the mid and maybe even upper twenties are possible. There may also be an increased risk of thunderstorms later next week.
