.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Wednesday night)
Issued at 228 PM CDT Tue Oct 27 2020

Fairly quiet weather as the low pressure system moving through
Manitoba today, reaches northwest Ontario late tonight and departs
Wednesday. A tight pressure gradient will be over the region as a
result with brisk winds the rest of this afternoon. Temps will be
warming, but with the wind, it will not feel very warm.

A cold front drops through the area on Wednesday. This will be a
dry frontal passage as moisture is limited. The wind will turn to
the northwest by the afternoon with a few gusts. The front exits
late Wednesday afternoon allowing high pressure to settle in for
Wednesday night.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 228 PM CDT Tue Oct 27 2020

The high pressure remains nearby through Thursday night. The high
drifts off to the east on Friday allowing a southerly flow to
develop as a pressure gradient tightens through the day. An area
of low pressure will move into southern Manitoba Friday night and
lift a warm front through the region. Southerly winds will be
increasing through the night.

The surface low moves into northwest Ontario Saturday dragging a
cold front through the area. Moisture is sparse, so no
precipitation is expected. Winds turn northwest behind the front
and colder air moves across the area. Strong cold air advection
Saturday night as a second cold front moves across the region.
Gusty northwest winds will accompany the second front. High
pressure follows behind the departing front Sunday.

The next dry cold front moves across the area Sunday night. The
chilly northwest winds continue. High pressure moves in Monday
through Tuesday with the wind gradually turning to the southwest.
