THE COLOR

ONE SURE THING

It's been a long wait, but it looks like spring weather will finally hit Winnipeg this week.

After half of April went by significantly below average, Winnipeg can finally breathe a sigh of relief as warmer temperatures make their way into southern Manitoba.

"We've got a ridge of high pressure sitting over southern Manitoba," said Environment Canada's Mike Russo. "That's generally giving us sunny skies."

It's not all good news. Russo says there is still a cool flow coming out of the ridge, which continues to put daily temperatures a few degrees below normal.

That could change by Wednesday. A small storm system is making its way through Winnipeg starting Tuesday night, before making way for double-digit temperatures, starting as early as Friday.

"With the snow cover gradually eroding, that's helping push up the temperatures," Russo explained.

Friday will mark the one-month anniversary of spring 2018, but the highest temperature recorded in Winnipeg since has been 7.0°C, recorded back on March 27. The next seven days are expected to exceed that mark.
