Just a heads up that models are hinting at our first significant snowfall of the month over Winnipeg and Southern MB by next Monday with 5-10 cm possible. Snow has been scarce this month over the Winnipeg area with only about 3 cm so far this month. Milder temperatures will be associated with this next system with temperatures possibly reaching -5C by Monday. However, models are indicating a return to below normal temperatures by Tuesday or Wednesday in the wake of this system, as northerly winds usher in another blast of Arctic air from the northwest. Will keep you posted on this developing situation in the days ahead..
In the meantime, enjoy the break from the cold snap over the next few days as the Arctic airmass moves east and moderating temperatures move in from the west. Brisk southerly winds on Thursday will begin bringing in that milder air, but those gusty south winds will make the afternoon high of -15 feel considerably colder. Friday looks much nicer as sunshine and light winds make highs of -15 feel milder. Thus, even though similar temperatures are forecast for Thursday and Friday, Friday will seem much milder due to to the lack of wind.
