With a low of -30.5°C overnight, Winnipeg has -finally- hit -30°C for the first time this season after jogging around the -28°C to -29°C mark for many days. The last time Winnipeg hit -30°C was actually all the way back to February 2 at -34.4°C. Brandon however, has yet to reach -30°C this season.
The frigid conditions will continue throughout the rest of the week. However, there will be a chance that we may even break the -20°C barrier and reach the minus teens on Thursday. Another shot of frigid air will follow unfortunately with highs in the -20's for Friday and the weekend. There have been hints of some warming up next week, but I'm not putting too much faith in that just yet. Will let you know if it looks to become reality.
As for snow, some flurries will be possible on Thursday. Some more snow will be possible on Friday, especially early in the day. However, the trend has been for the clipper system to miss us to the west, with southeastern Saskatchewan and parts of southwestern Manitoba seeing the most. A few cm will be possible there. Not a major system by any means.
Another clipper system is expected for Saturday. At this point, anywhere from 2-7 cm can be expected in southern Manitoba. Winnipeg will have a better chance for snow with this system. Updates will come as the days get closer.
