winnipeg weather

Canadians across much of the country, with the notable exceptions of those in British Columbia and Newfoundland and Labrador, continue to swelter from a heat wave, and Thursday's temperatures are expected to reach a boiling point in parts of Ontario  .
A humidex advisory remains in effect for communities in the southern parts of the province: from Windsor to Toronto to Ottawa and everywhere in between, humidex values are expected to climb "well into the 40s today," Environment Canada cautioned in an early-morning bulletin.
"The humid tropical air mass has arrived," the weather agency said. Morning temperatures across the region were in the mid-20s, and as the sun rises higher in the sky the mercury is expected to climb into the mid and upper 30s in the afternoon. That's when the humidex temperatures in the 40s are expected.
By 7 a.m., the temperature at Toronto's Pearson International Airport was already at 27 C, but felt like 38 C with the humidity. A high of 38 C, before the humidex, is expected.
Although that temperature is well above average for this time of year, it's not the highest the city's ever experienced.
That record goes to July 8, 1936, when the temperature in Toronto climbed to 40.6 C during a continent-wide heat wave that set temperature records in Ontario, Manitoba and 16 U.S. states and killed 780 Canadians, most of them elderly or infants.
The heat is expected to break slightly for Ontarians as a weak front is forecast to move in Thursday night. Temperatures will continue in the low- to mid-30s, but they'll be accompanied by a little less humidity, Environment Canada said.
Meanwhile, the humidity may not be as intense out east, but the air quality is doing worse, as a smog warning is in effect for Quebec and an air quality and health advisory has been issued for New Brunswick.
On Tuesday, Winnipeggers sweated out a record-tying day with a peak temperature of 34.4 C -- that felt like 47 C with the humidex. Conditions were similar across much of the Prairies, where temperatures were well above average.
But on Wednesday night, Manitobans caught a break from the humidity. Environment Canada ended its humidex advisory for Winnipeg and the south-central and southeastern parts of the province.
In B.C. and Newfoundland and Labrador, temperatures have been average or slightly below for this time of year
