Spring has yet to arrive in Southern MB despite it's official start last week. Temperatures this morning across Southern MB were well below normal, with readings of -15 to -20C across much of the area. The coldest temperature was a -25C reading at Wasagaming in Riding Mtn National Park. Despite the cold readings, no record low temperatures were set across MB this morning, as record lows for today are still around the -30C mark (yes, it has been worse!)
Cold weather will dominate over the next couple of days before temperatures moderate by the end of the week. However models are indicating the potential for 5-10 cm of snow across southern MB Saturday into Saturday night as a fairly vigorous storm system tracks out of Montana into southern SK and then into the MB interlake. Given this track, the heaviest snow would likely stay north and west of Winnipeg, however there could be a band of heavy snow accompanying the system as it moves across southern MB late Saturday along with gusty southerly winds. Hopefully this system behaves like most weather systems this year, and the bulk of the snow misses Winnipeg and the Red River valley. I'm tired of winter.. I don't want any more snow!
