Snowfall slipping south of city
An Alberta clipper storm system is bringing an area of snow just south of Winnipeg this morning. Snow is falling from just south of the city to the US border, with the heaviest amounts across southwest MB into the southern Red River Valley. Radar indicates that 10-15 cm snow likely fell in a band from Virden to Morden (image left) overnight into this morning. Highways are snowcovered and slippery south and west of the city so be prepared for winter driving conditions if you are travelling south of the city today. This system will continue to slide southeastward today moving into northern Minnesota this afternoon. Gusty northwest winds behind this clipper will usher in colder air over all of southern MB tonight into Wednesday with temperatures finally returning to normal values for early December.

Kudos to the 3 people who voted for <2 cm snowfall for Winnipeg! A dusting of snow as close as Sanford.. but that's about it. (For the record, I voted for 5-10 cm) Our snowfree ground remains intact for now!ReplyDelete
Spoke too soon.. getting a light dusting of snow here in Charleswood this morning.ReplyDelete
I see environment Canada has switched their radar to "snow" mode.ReplyDelete
When you click on the word "radar" on your post it brings me too a cool looking radar image!!!!

That's the Prairie composite radar, available from the "U of M Weather Club."ReplyDelete
The EC rader show a small snow band coming from western maniotba, Hopefuly it will stay organised and hit winnipeg. also EC said that theres about 2 to 4 Cm of snow coming tommorow morning and afternoon. They also said the same thing yesterday And look what happend today. I aint getting my hopes up this time.ReplyDelete
TWN is only saying about 1cm and then clearing tomorrow afternoon. So who knows.ReplyDelete
The snow in the forecast for tomorrow is in response to the chance of lake-effect snowsqualls. See the Special Weather Statement issued for more details.ReplyDelete
What is the water temperature in the north and south basins right now? And in a normal year, would they be frozen over by now?ReplyDelete
