The next few days will feel much more like January than November in southern Manitoba.
Snow will be moving into the Winnipeg area this evening from North Dakota. It has already moved into southwestern Manitoba and areas along the US border this afternoon. The snow will move out overnight or early morning tomorrow, making for a slippery drive to work tomorrow morning. Heaviest amounts are expected to be along the US border where 5-10 cm is expected. This includes the Killarney, Morden, Emerson and Sprague regions. Steinbach may get into these totals as well depending on how long and intense the snow lasts. The Winnipeg and Brandon areas should get accumulations in the 3-6 cm range. Winds will be a little breezy with drifting snow.
A surge of unseasonably frigid arctic air moves in tomorrow. Highs in the mid to high minus teens are anticipated.
A southerly flow ahead of a weak clipper system for Friday will actually cause our temperatures to rise tomorrow night, and potentially up into the minus single digits by midday Friday. Some flurries are possible on Friday with this system, but minimal accumulations are expected.
Temperatures plummet Friday night as we will likely drop into the -20's for the first time since April. We'll likely only reach the mid minus teens for a high on Saturday.
Some warmer air moves in on Sunday as we rise into the minus single digits, thanks to another clipper system. Some flurries are possible. Unfortunately, unseasonably cold weather is expected to continue next week.
