Lake Winnipeg - north basin

Issued 4:18 PM CST 16 January 2022 Heavy snow, strong winds, and blowing snow for southern Manitoba beginning Monday night.

A low pressure system will track across the Prairies Monday night bringing a heavy swath of snow from eastern Saskatchewan southeastward to Lake of the Woods. The axis of heaviest snow will include the Parkland region of Manitoba, much of the Red River Valley including Lake Manitoba and the south basin of Lake Winnipeg, through to the Whiteshell. Storm-total snowfall accumulations through these areas of 10 to 20 cm are possible.

As the low moves to the southeast on Tuesday, strong northwesterly winds will develop over the region. The strongest wind gusts are expected in the Red River Valley with gusts of up to 90 km/h over Lake Manitoba Tuesday afternoon into the evening.

These strong winds, combined with freshly fallen snow, will produce a widespread area of blowing snow. The most extensive blowing snow is likely to occur over Lake Manitoba on Tuesday night with possible blizzard conditions of visibilities of less than 800 m for 4 hours.

Conditions will improve Wednesday morning as the winds taper off. Behind this system, another surge of arctic air will move into the Prairies. Overnight lows will drop to near minus 30 midweek, then milder temperatures will return to the region for the end of the week,

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