A meteorologist with Environment Canada says the cool, wet conditions are now behind us.

Jesse Wagar says southern Manitoba has been under the influence of a low-pressure system the last few days, which brought cloud cover and scattered showers. But, she says that system has now moved into Ontario. 

Wagar explains a ridge of high pressure is now moving in from the west. This is the same system that brought very hot conditions to B.C. and Alberta. 

"It's very hot in Alberta today," she says. "It is making its way east, so you guys are next in line for the heat."

The change in weather comes just in time for Friday morning's Pioneer Days Parade in downtown Steinbach. Wagar says when the parade kicks off at 10 am, Steinbach should be experiencing temperatures in the low 20s.

"And we're not currently expecting any rain in southern Manitoba tomorrow," she adds. "So it looks beautiful for your parade tomorrow."

Friday's high for Steinbach is 27 degrees, followed by 31 degrees on Saturday. Wagar says Sunday could see some scattered showers and possible thunderstorms before things turn hot and dry again.

"As the heat starts to build up in the area, consider rescheduling outdoor activities to the cooler hours of the day," suggests Wagar. "Make sure you are staying hydrated and of course, don't leave any person or pet inside a closed vehicle for any length of time during these very warm temperatures."
