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 597 KB) (February 3 - 9, 2020) shows that the entire agro-Manitoba got less than 5 mm of precipitation and only three locations (Carman, Selkirk and Dauphin) got 2 mm or more.
  • Total Accumulated Precipitation Map (PDF 631 KB) (November 01, 2019 - February 9, 2020) shows the total precipitation amount since the start of November. Carman (50.3 mm), Pinawa (49 mm) and Morden (43.8 mm) are the top three locations with the highest amount of total accumulated precipitation since November 2019. Areas north and east of Riding Mountain National Park around The Narrows (Laurier, Alonsa, Ste. Rose, Reedy Creek, Rorketon, Moosehorn and Taylor’s Point) as well as areas northeast of Turtle Mountain Provincial Park (Boissevain, Killarney, Ninette and Baldur) have received the least amount of total precipitation (less than 18 mm).
  • Percent of Normal Accumulated Precipitation (PDF 772 KB) (November 01, 2019 to February 9, 2020)   is based on historical record over a 30-year period. Almost all the areas within agro-Manitoba have received below the historical accumulated precipitation, except The Pas at 114% and Carberry (102%). Locations north of Assiniboine River around Miniota, Hamiota, Kenton, Rivers, Brandon, Shilo and Carberry have received over 80% of normal accumulated precipitation.
