Lake-enhanced snow last night provided our first accumulative snowfall of the season in Winnipeg. Generally, about 1 cm fell, the first accumulation since late April. This ties as 14th latest first accumulative snowfall of the fall season, since 1872. The latest first snowfall accumulation was on November 21, 1963. The fall of 1963 just so happened to feature both the warmest fall and warmest October on record.
More snow is on the way tonight and tomorrow. Snow should begin sometime around late afternoon or in the evening and continue through at least the morning tomorrow. More scattered light flurry activity may continue through the afternoon. Generally 2-5 cm is expected.
Any sign of warmer weather is still extremely far on the horizon. Overnight lows in the minus teens and highs in the minus single digits are expected through the remainder of the week. An enhanced push of colder air this coming weekend will make it difficult to exceed -10°C for a couple days early next week.
