Phillips says Winnipeg will get temperatures a few degrees above normal for the long weekend and sunshine starting on Friday.
The above-average temps, said Phillips, will make Winnipeg the most hospitable spot in the entire country over the weekend.
“You guys are going to have the best weather — temperatures that are five to six degrees warmer than normal. You’d have to go back to last September to see temperatures better than what you’re going to see this coming weekend.
“I looked everywhere… and no other place than Winnipeg is going to have the perfect 10 weather.”
