Sept. 14 — With a strong ridge of warm high pressure holding fast over pretty much all three Prairie provinces, the chances of seeing any frost over the next five to seven days is very small.
Northern and extreme eastern regions of Manitoba have a very small chance of seeing some light frost late this week as high pressure moves southward from northern Canada.
The models are hinting at our first widespread frost late next week but that is a long way off and a lot can change between now and then.

Many readers have been impressed by the consistent accuracy of his Manitoba forecasts for the week ahead, so we’ve asked him to keep a similar watch for potential weather systems that might mean frost in parts of the Prairies over the next few days.
