Warnings

Warnings (In effect)

Blizzard warning in effect

Lake Winnipeg - north basin

Issued 01:57 AM CST 27 February 2024 Blizzard conditions with gusty winds and visibility frequently near zero in snow and blowing snow are expected or occurring.

Maximum wind gusts: 70 to 80 km/h

Locations: Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba

Time span: Monday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon

Remarks: Strong northerly winds in the wake of a departing Alberta Clipper will combine with freshly fallen snow and produce a blizzard that will persist into Tuesday. Conditions will improve through Tuesday afternoon as the winds ease.

Travel is expected to be extremely hazardous due to reduced visibility. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. If you do travel and become lost, remain where you are until the blizzard has passed. Protect yourself from wind, cold and disorientation by staying sheltered, indoors or with your vehicle. Anyone who is not dressed warmly is at risk of frostbite and hypothermia in cold weather. For information on emergency plans and kits go to https://www.getprepared.gc.ca/.

Blizzard warnings are issued when widespread reduced visibilities of 400 metres or less are expected for at least 4 hours.

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