Follow snow on radar. Keep in mind that radar images from the Weatheroffice website are still on RAIN rate and will underplay snow intensities (radar will be changing to SNOW rate on Mon Dec 3rd). Consult Brad's radar viewer from A Weather Moment for radar images showing more accurate SNOW rate intensities. For latest road and highway conditions, see Manitoba highways website.

Snow spreading into Winnipeg from the west this afternoon.. 2-5 cm possible through this evening.
An area of snow over southern Saskatchewan is spreading into western Manitoba this morning, with visibilities starting to drop in the Dauphin and Brandon regions and towards the SK border. Snow will continue to spread eastward today reaching Winnipeg by mid to late afternoon, in time for the evening rush hour. Snow will continue to increase through the evening with about 2-5 cm likely in Winnipeg by midnight, with higher amounts of 5-10 cm possible along the Yellowhead corridor into the Riding Mountains. Snow will gradually taper off overnight as this system pulls off to the east. Friday will be mainly cloudy but turning milder as southerly winds start drawing up warmer air from the south. Another weak system will be crossing southern Manitoba Friday night into Saturday with more snow likely through the interlake regions, with mixed precipitation including the risk of freezing rain over Winnipeg and the RRV. A stronger storm system will likely impact southern Manitoba Sunday night into Monday, with rain or freezing rain over the RRV changing to snow along with strong northwest winds and falling temperatures.
