Hot and sunny conditions continue today for most of Manitoba with temperatures reaching the upper 20s in most regions, north and south.
For context regarding the heat in the north, Lynn Lake was the hottest place in all of Manitoba yesterday with a high of 28.8C. Churchill was virtually at hot, reaching 28.5C. Winnipeg's highest temperature was 26.4C.
Today will be another hot day for the northeast, but a cold front crossing the region is expected to bring showers and trigger non-severe thunderstorms. But hail is possible.
Over in the southwest, there is the risk of thundestorms late this afternoon, although the risk is low.
Look for heat warnings to return to central and north parts of the province on Thursday and Friday with a hot air mass approaching from the west.
Heat warnings aren't expected in the south, but today's hot forecast high for Winnipeg is 28C, followed by 30C and 31C on Thursday and Friday, respectively. Some much needed rain is likely on Friday night and again on Sunday in the city.
