Manitoba Weather

Known for its sunny, clear-sky days, Manitoba's climate varies widely, north to south.

Because of its flat landscape, (no high mountains to block air movement) cold Arctic air masses easily sweep across the northern reaches of the province in winter, while in the south, warm and humid air masses from the Gulf of Mexico push into southern Canada, producing, at times, extreme conditions, including tornadoes.

The south-central region and the Winnipeg area generally experience pleasant spring weather, warm and humid summers, crisp fall conditions and cold winters. In the southwest, summers are a bit hotter with less humidity. Winters are cold and windy with moderate precipitation.

The northern regions of the province (north of Thompson) are in a sub-arctic climate zone where conditions change quickly. Winters are harsh, long, and extremely cold; summers can be pleasant, though short, with very little precipitation. Lakes and rivers freeze solid here, and Hudson Bay is no exception.
