WINNIPEG — A windy start to the last week where we can actually claim it’s still summer.

Despite the wind gusts Monday which reached close to 70 kilometres an hour by lunch time – our temperatures remain above seasonal.

The sun will continue into Tuesday as high pressure moves into our area, but the winds will be lighter.

We’ll start to see our temperatures dip into single digits overnight, and as we get closer to the weekend they will also get cooler.

Our normal overnight temperature at this time of year is 5 degrees Celsius.

5-day

The fall equinox officially arrives Thursday September 22 at 9:21 a.m. when the day and evening are about 12 hours long.

As harvest continues for some, many are thankful that September has also been a relatively dry month so far.

We’ve seen 19.8 millimetres of rain as of Monday in Winnipeg. That is well back of our total amount of rain from last year when we received 61.1 mm.

2014 was not quite as wet – we received 40.7 mm.

The average rainfall for the month of September is 45.5 mm.
