Lake Winnipeg - north basin

Issued 10:26 AM CST 17 January 2020 A strong weather disturbance will bring highly variable weather conditions to southern Manitoba later this afternoon through Saturday.

A large change in the weather is on the way for southern Manitoba. Snow will begin spreading into the province from the south today, intensifying this evening and through the night. The highest snowfall accumulations will occur over the Red River Valley, southern Interlake, and areas eastwards. General accumulations of 10 to 20 cm are forecast in these areas before the snow tapers off on Saturday with lesser amounts to the west and north.

Through the night, moderate northwesterly winds will develop, combining with the falling snow to produce areas of reduced visibility in blowing snow. The areas most impacted by blowing snow tonight will likely be the Red River Valley.

On Saturday, light snow will continue through the day across much of southern Manitoba with a further accumulation of 1 to 3 cm. The northwesterly winds will strengthen to 40 gusting 70 km/h with temperatures hovering in the low minus teens to -20°C range. The accumulated snow, continuing light snow, and strong winds will produce widespread blowing snow through the day. Winds will gradually ease on Saturday night with improving conditions.

Warnings are in place for several regions in southern Manitoba, but may need to be adjusted as the system approaches. Please stay alert for updated bulletins. Anyone who has plans to travel on area highways tonight or Saturday should ensure that they check local weather forecasts (https://weather.gc.ca/forecast/canada/index_e.html?id=mb) regional highway conditions (https://manitoba511.ca/en/) before travelling. Ensure that your vehicle contains a winter emergency kit (https://www.getprepared.gc.ca/cnt/rsrcs/sfttps/tp201012-en.aspx) in case poor travelling conditions cause you to be stranded for a period of time. Poor travelling conditions will also develop through the Dakotas and Minnesota, where this system will bring higher snowfall accumulations along with strong winds.

Temperatures will remain below-seasonal through the remainder of the weekend, but a milder weather pattern is likely to develop next week.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to MBstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #MBStorm.
