More Snow on the Way



850mb wind forecast showing the deep southerly flow that will be providing the moisture and lift for today’s system.


0°C / -2°C
Snow beginning this afternoon. 2-4cm overnight.

A frontal wave sliding across the Prairies will push into Southern Manitoba this morning, spreading snow eastwards across the Red River Valley this afternoon. While southwestern Manitoba will see 5–10cm of the white stuff, we should fare a little better here in the RRV with 5cm expected near the US border tapering off to 2–4cm here in Winnipeg. The bulk of the snow will fall this evening into the overnight period before tapering off late overnight or early tomorrow morning.

Saturday & Sunday

1°C / -11°C
Cloudy with a chance of flurries. Clearing late in the day.
-4°C / -14°C
Increasing cloud. Light snow beginning in the afternoon.

Saturday will be a bit of a mixed bag with some lingering flurries in the morning and gradual clearing in the afternoon before skies clear late in the afternoon or evening. The high temperature on Saturday should be around 1°C and we’ll see temperatures drop to –11 or –12°C Saturday night.

More snow looks to be on the way for Sunday afternoon as an Alberta Clipper slides along the international border. At this point, it doesn’t look like a significant system, but it should pack enough of a punch that it will likely drop a couple cm through the RRV in the afternoon. After Sunday, it looks like we’ll slip back into another benign pattern with below-normal temperatures as a surface ridge keeps snowier weather to our west and to our south.
