A weak weather system will cross southern Manitoba on Thursday bringing increasing clouds and some flurries to the area. Only a dusting of snow is expected with this system along with slightly moderating temperatures, but the main story will be the cold air that will follow in the wake of this system Thursday night into Friday. Temperatures will drop into the minus 30 range by Friday morning, and brisk northwest winds of 30 km/h will give extreme windchill values below minus 40. Extreme windchill values will persist through Friday as brisk northwest winds continue along with daytime highs only in the minus 20s. The cold weather will continue through the weekend although winds should be a little lighter. Get that block heater ready!
