In terms of weather, this summer was a crazy one. Tornadoes, extremely hot and humid temperatures, and even some cold ones.
You may have been at Interstellar Rodeo on the hottest day of the year, and if you were, I’m sure you can’t forget the heat that day. The temperature got up to 34.3 Celsius on August 14, and that’s without the humidity.
In terms of cold, the coldest temperature was the morning of August 25. The temperature was only 2.8 Celsius that morning! That was probably the morning you woke up and thought ‘Damn, fall is here.’
Labour Day weekend was a stormy one, but wasn’t the stormiest we’ve seen. Winnipeg had multiple severe storms this summer, but August 22-23 weekend was a record breaker. Over 121 millimitres of rain fell in parts of Winnipeg, and that was on top of downed power lines, flooded streets, and trees hit by lightning. On top of all of the storms and crazy humidity, Manitoba saw more tornado activity than normal. About 11 tornado situations were reported, which includes actual tornadoes and warnings.
Hopefully a crazy summer means a more tame winter, and hopefully, tame means mild.
