Snow possible by weekend over southern MB
A strong storm system moving into the Central US plains this week is poised to bring a large area of rain and wet snow to the Northern Plains, with some snow likely working its way into southern Manitoba Friday into Saturday. The bulk of precipitation is expected to fall over the southern Dakotas into the northern Mississippi Valley where totals of 50 mm or more are possible, but a band of rain and wet snow is forecast to spread northward into southern Manitoba during Friday, likely changing to snow Friday night into Saturday even across the Red River valley. Much of the snow should melt initially, however some accumulations are possible especially over higher terrain. Like it or not, winter ain't done with us yet.
