Warm weather sent southern Manitoba residents outside in droves Wednesday, following weeks of chilly temps.

"As of 4 p.m. CDT, Winnipeg reached 10 degrees Celsius," says Weather Network meteorologist Brian Dillon, noting that this is the first time the region has climbed into the double-digits since November thirteenth.

"Morden reached a daytime high of 19.3°C Wednesday, due to a passing warm front that is sweeping across the Prairies. These warm winds brought record temps to Saskatchewan and Alberta on Tuesday."

As the warm front moved into Manitoba, cooler air brought the temperature down in the rest of the Prairies.

"That brought temperatures closer to seasonal in Alberta and Saskatchewan," adds Weather Network meteorologist Monica Vaswani.

The warm conditions represent a blip in the radar, with cooler conditions set to return on Thursday.

"Northwest winds will return tomorrow, bringing below-seasonal temperatures to the region for the rest of the week," Dillon says, adding the day time windchill could dip to -10 in the long range.
