Snow moving into Winnipeg this evening
The snow has been having a tough time surfacing in Winnipeg and much of the Red River valley this evening. Radar has been showing echoes over us much of the evening, however dry air in the low levels has been evaporating the snow before it hits the ground. However it looks like a leading edge of snow will finally make it in by 10 pm or so into Winnipeg from the west, and with those gusty southerly winds of 40 to 60 km/h, look for visibilities to drop significantly in snow and blowing snow, perhaps 1 km or less especially in open areas outside the city. The snow should last for a few hours with up to 5 cm possible before it tapers off overnight.
