In what is becoming an all too familiar pattern this winter, another clipper system from western Canada will be tracking across Manitoba tomorrow, bringing increasing winds, snow, briefly milder temperatures and then another cold outbreak in its wake. In the short term, the clipper system will be spreading an area of snow across southern Manitoba Thursday, pushing into Winnipeg and the Red River valley by mid afternoon to early evening from the northwest. Winds will be increasing out of the south through the day, with gusts to 60 or 70 km/h by evening which combined with the falling snow, will result in poor visibilities in blowing and drifting snow, especially Thursday evening. About 2 to 5 cm of snow is expected to fall by the time the snow tapers off around midnight, with temperatures continuing to climb Thursday night to about -5C by Friday morning. Friday will be a milder day with high temperatures near -3C before colder air moves in by evening. Saturday will see quiet seasonable weather before another clipper tracks through southwest Manitoba by Saturday night, bringing additional snow. This system will be followed by another surge of bitterly cold air Sunday into Monday with daytime temperatures in the minus 20s and brisk north winds giving wind chills in the minus 40s. Cold conditions will persist into the middle of next week before milder weather returns by the end of the week.
