Temperatures climb in southern Manitoba, but sky stays cloudy

Southern Manitoba's one-day mini cold snap is over and milder temperatures are moving back in — in fact, a  big time warm up is on the way.

After a cold high of –16 C on Tuesday, Winnipeg should get up to –4 C on Wednesday and all the way to 2 C by Friday. That warm up also brings a messy mix of everything from wet snow to rain.

And you won't be using sunglasses very much for the rest of this week, as the skies will stay cloudy.
