Western Prairies continue cooler

Summer-like temperatures hung in over southeastern Manitoba for Victoria Day, with highs reaching +26 C around Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie. Further west, highs touched just +18 C around Roblin, Man., +10 C around Edmonton and Medicine Hat, Alta., +9 C around Melfort and Weyburn, Sask. and +6 C around Calgary, but hit +20 C in the B.C. Peace region. (We’re still looking into that spot around Kindersley, Sask.)

Lows at WeatherFarm stations on Monday dropped to +1 C in much of Alberta’s Peace region, +6 C around Prince Albert, +8 C around Lloydminster, +9 C around Dauphin and +15 C around Winnipeg.
