WINNIPEG — School is back in session, and just like that, the weather has taken a definite turn to feeling more like Fall.

After a Labour Day weekend that saw some sunshine, hot temperatures, and unfortunately a lot of rain – southern Manitoba is feeling the difference in the temperature this week.

Our seasonal daytime high has now dropped to 20 Celsius with the overnight low of 8 C.

After reaching 28 C on Saturday our temperature dropped significantly Sunday to 19 C and along with that came the rain.

The Red River Valley was hit hardest by Sunday’s system while Winnipeg received much less than other areas with a total of 14 millimetres.
