Earlier this month, warm air invaded Manitoba leading to several consecutive days of record breaking mild temperatures.
The heat persisted throughout the day on Monday helping to trigger thunderstormsáduring the evening hours.
Intense lightning kept workers indoors at the Winnipeg Airport, which in turn grounded flights and lead to several delays.
It also sparked a fire on top of a hydro pole in the city. As a result, about 3,800 people were without power at the height of the storm.
Now, as the cold front passes through, temperatures are set to plunge on Tuesday.
"Day time highs will still be far above seasonal however, as the normal high for this time of year is about 1░C," says Gina Ressler, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
