WINNIPEG – You may want to put your Canada Day festivities on hold until later in the day, at least if you plan on partying outdoors.
It will be a cool, wet and windy July 1 in southern Manitoba.
Showers should fizzle out in the early afternoon but dark overcast skies will remain, the temperature will reach a high of only 17 degrees and winds will be gusting as high as 70 km/hr in the afternoon in Winnipeg.
Clear skies should return this evening, with the wind forecast to drop to 20 km/hr. That should at least clear the way for the 11 p.m. fireworks display at the Forks. But bundle up: by then the temperature will dip to an un-summer like 11 degrees.
