It will be another chilly night tonight with lows in the mid minus teens expected throughout most of southern Manitoba. Tomorrow, a weak clipper system will move into the province providing the opportunity for more snowfall. Again, western and southwestern Manitoba is expected to bear the brunt of the system because it is expected to weaken as it moves east. A few flurries or light snowfall is expected to reach the Red River Valley by afternoon however, but major accumulations are not expected. 2-5 cm will fall in western Manitoba with locally higher amounts of 5-8 cm possible. 2-4 cm is expected along the Trans-Canada in southwestern Manitoba, including Brandon, while only a dusting to 2 cm is expected along the US Border. Only a dusting to 2 cm is also expected to fall in the Red River Valley, most of it falling in the afternoon and evening.
A few lingering flurries Tuesday morning will taper off midday with sunnier conditions expected in the afternoon. The next good chance for snowfall will be Friday into Friday night. This particular Alberta Clipper has the potential to be a little more significant for eastern areas with accumulating snowfall possible in Winnipeg. It's a little too far to begin giving snowfall amounts however. Just keep in mind that the week may end a little snowy.
Temperatures look, well, quite ''boring'' this week with seasonal to seasonably cool conditions expected. In other words, no major fluctuations. Essentially, I wouldn't expect anything vastly different from what we've already been experiencing the past week.
A few notes about my blog.
- The photos page has been updated and now includes an archive for any educational posts about weather I post.
- Calgary, Alberta has now been officially added to my record books. I only have the monthly and yearly temperature records however. I have also added the city's 1981-2010 normals for temperatures (which are preliminary because Environment Canada hasn't officially released these normals yet).
- I will begin making daily 3-day forecasts for Winnipeg in my ''Winnipeg forecast'' page starting tomorrow.
