Today

Clear skies, sunshine and a very high UV index continue on this final day of May with temperatures rising up from 6 degrees this morning into the low 20s before noon!

After a brief break from the breezy conditions on Tuesday, the wind has returned, but this time as a warm southerly one around 20 km/h with gusts upwards of 30 km/h.

Sunshine will stick around for the rest of the day with winds picking up to around 30 km/h with gusts of 40 to 50 km/h as we warm up to an afternoon high around 27 degrees.

Tonight

Mostly clear skies stick around tonight with winds easing back a bit as we fall back into low double digits.

Thursday

June kicks off on a hot note on Thursday with the core of the heat associated with an upper ridge over our area, helping warm us up into the 30s for the second time this year!

A trough of low pressure will sneak in as the ridge starts to move out later in the day, which will allow clouds to move in with a chance of late day showers and thunderstorms.

Upper ridge keeps us in the heat on Thursday.
