Snow and cold on the way..

A little more snow on the way today.. Turning colder tonight. More snow Tuesday night.

A weak clipper system over southwest MB this morning will track across North Dakota today bringing an area snow across southern MB. The snow has spread into the Portage area as of 10 am and will move into Winnipeg by midday. About 2 cm of snow can be expected this afternoon before the snow ends, with poor visibility at times and locally slippery driving conditions especially south and west of Winnipeg where the snow may be heavier at times. As the snow ends later today, brisk northerly winds will develop bringing in a surge of colder air from central MB where temperatures are currently in the minus 20s.  Cold air will flood across southern MB tonight with wind chills dropping to the -30 range. Tuesday will start off clear and cold but another Alberta clipper system will spread cloud in during the day with another batch of snow developing from the west by afternoon. Look for this snow to spread into Winnipeg by Tuesday evening, with another 3 to 5 cm of snow likely Tuesday night into early Wednesday. As this system moves east, cold air will once again be reinforced across southern MB for the end of the week.  Like it or not.. winter has arrived in southern MB.
