Storm system continues to affect southeast MB/Red River valley with snow and blowing snow..
The storm system that brought rain, snow and ice to southern MB Tuesday continues to affect the area with snow and blowing snow today along with colder temperatures. The storm center is pushing slowly towards Kenora with snow and gusty winds on the backside of the storm affecting areas mainly over southeast MB and the Red River valley. Snowfall amounts of 5-10 cm are likely in these areas today, with the highest amounts expected east of Winnipeg where 10-15 cm is possible through tonight. Of greater concern are the strong northerly winds accompanying the snow today which are producing poor visibility in blowing snow in open areas and through much of the Red River valley. Highway conditions will be poor today through much of southern MB due to icy roads and poor visibility at times. This system will finally pull off Thursday with a welcome break from precipitation through the upcoming weekend.
