WINNIPEG — Cool, windy, rainy. It wasn’t a perfect weekend in Winnipeg and certainly not for the people at the Folk Festival.
Yesterday was one of the coldest July days we’ve had in years, with the airport registering a high of 15.7 C. The closest comparison is July 12, 2008, when the high was 16.6 C at the airport. The last time temperatures were cooler was on July 2, 1997.
The end of the week will hopefully compensate for the cool start to the week. Monday is the only day that has a chance of showers. The rain is likely to avoid southern Manitoba throughout the work week as temperatures slowly climb.
Near the end of the week, moisture could return to the south. This could impact the humidity levels for Thursday and Friday, which are already expected to be quite hot. It could also help trigger thunderstorms once we get into the weekend.
