Weather Conditions and Reports

Manitoba's ag weather program measures and records data year round from over 100 weather stations across agro-Manitoba. The stations monitor air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, precipitation, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, soil temperature, and soil moisture. The latest weather conditions from each station are made available every 15 minutes throughout the growing season and every hour during the winter months.

  • Seven-Day Accumulated Precipitation Map (PDF 779 KB) (February 15 - 21, 2021)  shows that precipitation across agro-Manitoba ranged from 0 mm to 1.1 mm in the past seven days at our weather station locations.  The Pas (1.1 mm) and Carman (0.5 mm) were the top two locations with the highest precipitation. All other stations reported less than 0.5 mm of precipitation.
  • Total Accumulated Precipitation Map (PDF 794 KB) (November 01 - February 21, 2021)  shows the total precipitation amount since the beginning of November.  The Pas (81 mm) reported the highest total accumulated precipitation since November 1, 2020, followed by Pinawa (50 mm), and Sprague Lake (46 mm).  Most of the East and Northwest have accumulated more than 20 mm.
  • Percent of Normal Accumulated Precipitation (PDF 790 KB) (November 01 - February 21, 2021)  is based on historical record over a 30-year period.  Much of agro-Manitoba has accumulated between 30% and 60% of normal precipitation.  The Pas (130%), Dauphin (68%), and Pinawa (63%) are the top three locations with the highest percent of normal precipitation.
  • Mean Temperature Difference (PDF 786 KB) (November 01 – February 21, 2021) illustrates how the average temperature since November 1 has varied from the 30-year normal temperatures. All stations in Manitoba reported mean temperature differences above normal. Mean temperature differences varied from 0.4°C above normal (San Clara) to 4.6°C above the 30-year average at St. Pierre. Much southern agro-Manitoba had a mean temperature difference between 2°C and 4°C above normal.
