As the clouds part tonight, the risk of frost increases for southeastern Manitoba.

The gusting northwest wind is expected to become lighter as the evening progresses, and the mercury could dip to three degrees.

With a temperature close to zero, gardeners might want to cover plants tonight to reduce the chance of damage.

Mostly sunshine is forecast for the next five days with daytime highs reaching the 20-degree mark. Evenings will continue to be chilly though, hovering close to freezing temperatures.
