Clipper to bring snow to western MB and Interlake.. rain south
An Alberta clipper will track through the Dakotas overnight and bring an area of rain and snow to southern MB tonight into Friday morning. Rain will spread into southern MB from the west tonight, but will change to snow over the higher elevations of western MB through the Riding Mountain and Duck Mountains areas. Snow will be heavy at times tonight in these areas with 10-20 cm possible, especially along the eastern slopes and over higher elevations. The highway 5 corridor from Dauphin to Roblin and Highway 10 corridor north of Hwy 5 through Ethelbert and Pine River are under the gun for heavy snow tonight. This snow will track east into the central and northern interlake regions overnight into Friday, bringing heavy snow to the Hwy 6 corridor mainly north of Lundar. Further south, precipitation will arrive in the form of rain tonight, with about 5-10 mm of rain possible in Winnipeg and the northern RRV overnight into Friday morning.
