Sunshine, heat, and even humidity are on the way for much of southern Manitoba on Tuesday.

While the first week of autumn comes to a close, July temperatures are reaching across the region.

In Winnipeg, a clear sky is expected with a high of 29 degrees. High humidity will make it feel more like 32 degrees.

The highest temperature ever recorded on September 28 in Winnipeg was 27.2 degrees. That record was recorded 78 years ago, in 1943.

Other areas could be even warmer today. Winkler, Morden, Brandon, and other cities have highs of 30 degrees expected. That would shatter Winkler's heat record of 25.9 degrees, which was set in 2000.

Melita and Virden, in southwestern Manitoba, are forecasted to reach 31 degrees. Virden's heat record was set in 2010 at 27.9 degrees.

The average high for this time of year is around 15.5 degrees and the average low is 3.6 degrees.

Warm weather will continue into next week with a high of 28 forecasted for Winnipeg on Wednesday, and then highs of 20 degrees and warmer from Thursday through Monday.
