  • Mean Temperature Difference (PDF 795 KB) (November 01 – January 10, 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 3°C above normal (San Clara and Roblin) to 7°C above the 30-year normal at St. Pierre. Much of the Central and East regions have seen temperatures between 4°C and 6°C higher than normal.
