Well, the first snow of the season is falling in Winnipeg. A cold rain started around 1:30 pm then changed to snow over the north part of the city by 2:45 pm. By 3 pm, the rain had changed to wet snow over much of the city with visibilities reduced to 1 km or less at times. Here in Charleswood, the wet snow began at 3:09 pm. The wet snow should end by late afternoon with 1 or 2 cm of slushy accumulation likely over grassy surfaces.
Like it or not.. the winter of 2006-07 has begun!
