Forecast Going Into The Christmas Holidays

     Today, well, we have ended up in a cloudy and somewhat snowy day once again. Well, it was nice seeing the sun for a bit yesterday at least ;) We shouldn't see too much snow however, with maximum 1 cm locally. Generally it looks to just be a dusting. Our temperatures will remain in the high minus teens through the day. Tomorrow, well it looks to at least start cloudy. We are expected to clear for the afternoon, but we will have to wait and see considering how the past few days have gone.

     For now, the Christmas week looks clear and cold for the entirety of the week with no major snowfalls expected. There may be a few flurries here and there, but nothing too organised is expected at this point. Good news if you have lots of travelling to do for the holidays. Also, as far as how cold it will get, right now it doesn't look like -30°C nights are in the cards as this next push of arctic air is not expected to be as severely frigid as it could be. However, we may come close with lows in the mid to low minus twenties and highs barely over -20°C on some days.

     This will be my last post until at least the 28th as I'll be taking a break to spend more time with family and friends these holidays. If needed, I will still provide a few comments under this post until the 24th.

     Happy Holidays!


  1. Back! Hope everyone had great holidays!

    Looks like we'll see some more flurries tomorrow that shouldn't accumulate to anything major. Things cool down behind the clipper for much of the week before another warmup is expected to begin next weekend. Will have to wait and see how warm we'll be talking about.

    As for the top 10 weather events of 2012 for the Winnipeg area, I plan to unveil number 10 and potentially number 9 tomorrow. I will unveil about 1 to 3 events per day until we reach number 1, so check daily!

  2. The bulk of the snowfall today will fall south of the Trans-Canada with 2 to 5 cm total by tonight (including what has already fallen). Here in Winnipeg, looks like we'll miss the bulk of the snowfall with just a few flurries this afternoon. Our next shot at some flurries will be Tuesday night and Wednesday.
