What a difference a year makes!

It will be another beautiful fall day over Southern Manitoba on Thursday as sunny skies and southerly breezes push temperatures close to the 20 degree mark.  This is in sharp contrast to a year ago when Southern Manitoba was hit by the season's first snowstorm on October 5th that brought 5 to 10 cm of wet snow to Winnipeg and up to 45 cm over southwest Manitoba near Pilot Mound. (see write-up at.. http://members.shaw.ca/wpgwx/robsobs/highlights05.htm)  No snow is in the forecast this year as the mild weather is expected to continue into Saturday before a cold front brings in cooler conditions for the remainder of the holiday weekend, but no snow.  Milder conditions are expected to move into Southern Manitoba again next week.
