A change in the jet stream moving well north of Winnipeg brought warm weather which broke records and forced closures for popular winter leisure activities over the weekend.

Winnipeg spent 67 consecutive hours above 0 degrees celsius from Friday through Sunday. That broke the previous record made 15 years ago, when there were 44 straight hours above 0 degrees back in 2002. The warm weather over the weekend forced closures of the Arctic Winter Glacier Park at The Forks, and all of the skating trails that are a part of the Red River Mutual Trail. As of 9:00 am this morning, these both remain closed. For updated information on the condition of the trails, visit The Forks website.
Expect these conditions to continue throughout the next couple of days. You can always find all of your weather details here.
