Is there such a thing as a "perfect" long weekend? Of course, nothing is perfect, but weather in Westman can be a headache and it can also be heaven. This weekend will be the later. August Long 2020 could be one of the best weather long weekends we've seen in years. Sunshine and normal temps all weekend. Overnight lows in the double digits so perfect for campfires or tenting, and no storms in the forecast.  

Of course, this is bittersweet news for organizers in Dauphin and Minnedosa who had to cancel the Ukrainian festival and Rockn' the Fields this year due to COVID. But the festival has moved online, and you can crank up the oldies on Youtube, complete with old videos to go along with it. A few showers ending late this morning then clearing. Risk of a thunderstorm this morning. High 25. Humidex 30. UV index 8 or very high. Here's the long weekend outlook from Environment Canada for your long weekend:

Today-Thundershowers end late this morning then clearing. High 25. Humidex 30. UV index 8 or very high.

Tonight-A few clouds. Low 12.

Saturday-Sunny. High 25. Humidex 27. Overnight Low 10.

Sunday-Sunny. High 25. Overnight Low 10.

Terry Fox Day Monday-Sunny. High 26.

Is this a perfect forecast for what YOU have planned? Golf? Fishing? Camping? Swimming? Whatever you're doing, have fun and BE SAFE!   In the meantime, check out these waterslides. IN BACKYARDS!
