Clearing skies reveal storm snow tracks
Satellite images today clearly reveal the snow tracks left from two late season winter storms that have affected southern MB over the past couple of days. The first track of snow extends from the Pilot Mound area through Portage to Gimli left over from Thursday's storm (April 24th). 10-20 cm of snow fell in this swath, with Winnipeg lying just on the eastern edge of the heavier snowband. Winnipeg saw a mix of snow and ice with this system with mainly rain or freezing rain further east. The second track of snow is over southeast MB just east of Winnipeg. This is snow left over from Saturday's storm (April 26) which dumped 15-25 cm across southeast MB closer to the Ontario border. This same storm system dropped record breaking snowfalls of 30-50 cm from northeastern SD into northern MN and NW Ontario. Quite the stormy finish to April!
