Winnipeg weather: some like it hot

Global News

The soggy holiday Monday has been the perfect set up for a five-day forecast that builds up to temperatures close to 30 C!

Victoria Day rainfall (in millimetres from Environment Canada)

  • McCreary 40
  • Virden 27
  • Minnedosa 25.2
  • Ethelbert 24.8
  • Dauphin 24.6
  • Ste. Rose 23.9
  • Hamiota 21.2
  • Brandon 20.2
  • Winnipeg (The Forks) 11
  • Winnipeg (airport) 7.5

Province-wide, this week’s temperatures look to get into the 20s on a regular basis, peaking Friday and Saturday at close to 30 C. The last time Winnipeg felt similar temperatures was early September, when temperatures were routinely in the high 20s and once got over 30 C.

The five-day forecast plays like a best-of album as rain is likely to return on Sunday. Fortunately, it should be far less than what fell yesterday and temperatures look like they’ll drop back closer to normal instead of 10+ degrees below seasonal.
