Forecast – for Jul. 7, 2011

It looks like summer is here to stay as this forecast period is dominated by what can only be described as typical summer weather. Weak high pressure will be in place during the second half of this week bringing with it more sun than clouds along with nice warm temperatures. This high should keep most of the precipitation away, but the odd late-day thundershower can’t be ruled out.

By Friday a fairly strong area of low pressure will be developing to our west. It is then forecasted to track north eastwards during the weekend. Western areas could see thunderstorms from this system as early as Friday evening with the remainder of southern and central Manitoba seeing showers and thunderstorms on Saturday. By Sunday the low should have moved off and high pressure will start to build in once again.

This area of high pressure looks to bring sunshine and warm temperature to start next week with high temperatures warming towards the low 30s by the middle of the week.

Looking beyond this period the weather models are showing typical summer weather to continue with plenty of warm air around along with the chance of thundershowers every couple of days.

Usual temperature range for this period Highs:22 to 31 C Lows:10 to 17 C
