No joke.. spring storm system to bring snow across southern MB overnight into Sunday
A beautiful springlike start to the weekend will end on a wintery note as a spring storm system tracks across the Dakotas tonight into Sunday bringing an area of snow to southern MB. Snow will spread into southwest MB this evening, possibly mixed at first with some rain before becoming heavy at times tonight. A snowfall warning is in effect from Melita to Pilot Mound where 10-20 cm is possible by Sunday, especially over higher elevations. Further east.. precipitation will likely begin as rain overnight in the Red River valley including Winnipeg, before changing to snow early Sunday. Wet snow, possibly heavy at times will continue Sunday before easing later in the day. Snow will likely melt initially however, 5-10 cm of heavy wet snow is possible in Winnipeg and the RRV by the time the snow taper offs by Sunday evening. Travellers should be prepared for a return to wintery weather Sunday over the RRV and much of southern MB with slippery road conditions and poor visibilities at times in heavy snow.
