Hot and humid August will start to cool off

Hot & humid to start the week with a cool down on the way

Global News

WINNIPEG — This week picks up where we left off from the weekend in Winnipeg and southern Manitoba: Saturday was hot, Sunday was humid.

Monday will be a cloudier version of Sunday. Temperatures will be in the mid-20s across the south but with the humidity, feel like it’s 30 C or warmer. You can also throw in a few scattered showers and the risk of non-severe thunderstorms.

From Monday to Wednesday, temperatures slowly warm up and the skies get clearer. The downside is if we maintain similar levels of humidity, it’ll feel like it’s in the mid-30s. Tuesday and Wednesday could be a repeat of last Friday’s scorcher, when the humidex value got up to 39.

Regardless of humidity, Wednesday will likely give us our peak temperatures for the week and Thursday looks like a soggy one. Right now, rainfall amounts look light but they could go up as the system gets closer.

This low pressure will bring rain and also looks to be changing things up as far as the hot August we’ve been enjoying in the province. Seventeen days into August, only three have stayed below 25 C. The second half of the month could be the opposite, with just a few days above 25 C.
