Temperatures will be on the rise quickly this week thanks to high pressure moving away and low pressure to the north. Southerly winds Monday night and into Tuesday will allow temperatures to climb to near -9 on Tuesday morning.

Coming in with milder weather will be some added cloud cover. Tuesday and Wednesday will be overcast and it’s likely the rest of the week will be very similar.

There’s the chance we’ll see a few flurries on Wednesday and around the end of the week as well, with a low pressure system moving into southern Manitoba. However, it doesn’t look like it will leave any substantial snowfall totals.

All week long, temperatures look like they’ll be above seasonal, just not terribly sunny past Monday.
