Here in Winnipeg, the snowfall will begin by evening tomorrow and continue through until Monday afternoon. 10-15 cm is expected for the city.
Strong north winds will be an issue with this system, sustained near 30 and gusts to 50 km/h. This will create some local drifting snow issues, but mainly on highways. As temperatures are expected to remain close to 0°C or just slightly below, roads will be extremely trecherous so please take caution out there. However, these milder temperatures will help prevent blizzard conditions somewhat.
|GEM global model forecast of total precipitation accumulations Sunday and Monday. Note highest amounts to our south.|
Cold temperatures are expected to remain in place for the entire work week, and there is no sign of a major turn to warm temperatures in the near future. Might as well get used to it because it ain't changing anytime soon! Think of it this way: we're experiencing history in the making right now, and it is difficult for it to get any worse than this. It could definitely be a while before we see a spring quite this bad again.
