Forecast – for Sep. 23, 2010

After an unsettled start to the week it looks like the weather will start to settle down a little bit. Low pressure will have brought clouds and showers to pretty much all of agricultural Manitoba by Wednesday. Behind this low, high pressure should begin to build in, bringing sunny skies on Thursday.

We will then have to watch the track of a strong southern low that’s forecast to push by to our south on Friday. Currently it looks like the southeastern corner of the province could see some showers from this system.

Over the weekend it appears as if we will see high pressure build in, as an upper ridge of high pressure tries to push north-eastward. This should bring plenty of sunshine along with fairly mild temperatures over the weekend. Current weather models indicate we may see high temperatures in the low to mid-20s on Sunday.

Next week looks as if it will start off mild, but the models predict an area of low pressure to move through late Monday and linger into Tuesday. This low will bring a good chance of showers and maybe even the odd thundershower. Once the low moves through, temperatures will cool down a little bit, with highs expected to be in the low to mid-teens.

Looking at the weather for the second half of next week, the models point toward a fairly quiet pattern as the overall flow becomes fairly flat. This should result in more sun than clouds, with fairly nice temperatures for this time of year.

Usual temperature range for this period: Highs:9 to 21 C. Lows:-2 to 7 C.
