First snowfall arriving Sunday?
As I mentioned a couple of days ago, it looks like Winnipeg and much of Southern MB may be seeing the first general snowfall of the season by Sunday night. An Alberta clipper system will track across southern MB on Sunday bringing an area of snow with it. Precipitation will move into western Manitoba from Saskatchewan Sunday morning, reaching Winnipeg by afternoon. Precipitation in Winnipeg may start off as a mix of rain and wet snow at first, but will change to all snow by evening as colder air moves in. The snow may fall heavily for a time Sunday evening before ending overnight. Accumulations of 2 to 5 cm are possible, but some of that will melt due to the still warm ground. Colder air will sweep in behind the system Sunday night into Monday, with temperatures falling below freezing. As a result, there could be some icy driving conditions for early Monday.
