Double trouble to end work week..
Two weather systems are poised to bring a double shot of precipitation to southern MB and NW Ontario Thursday and Friday. Both systems will form over the central Rockies and move through the Dakotas into NW Ontario. The first system is expected to bring precipitation into southern MB Wednesday night tapering off Thursday afternoon. This system looks like it will bring rain over southeast MB changing to wet snow over southwest MB. Winnipeg and the Red River valley is expected to be on the warm side of this system at first but may change to wet snow before the precipitation tapers off. Heavier embedded showers and possible thunderstorms may bring soaking rains of 25 mm or more over portions of southern MB with 10 cm or more of wet snow possible over higher elevations of western MB. The second system on Friday, tracking a little further east, will encounter colder air on the backside of Thursday's storm and may bring accumulating snow to southeast MB and NW Ontario including the Whiteshell and Lake of the Woods. An unsettled end to the work week.. with significant amounts of rain and/or wet snow to parts of southern MB and NW Ontario. Stay tuned..
