A little bit of sun, a little bit of snow in forecast

  • Print

Winter is coming.

No, that’s not a promo for tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones.

Winter is on its way to southern Manitoba, though not with anywhere near the fury in store for North Dakota.

Let’s soften you up first with the least-worst of the news from Environment Canada: a high of 3 C today, with sun, but two to four centimetres of snow is forecast to fall in Winnipeg tonight.

Monday and Tuesday it's predicted to hit 0 C then slowly warm up to 4 C by Saturday, or so the federal weather agency promises.

We could stop there and reckon that’s misery enough...

On the other hand, maybe you can handle the truth, which is that Environment Canada says Morris and Emerson are in for as much as 12 cm of heavy, blowing snow, starting this evening.

Alas, Environment Canada is Super Cheerful compared to the U.S. National Weather Service, which says that by Monday night, Grand Forks, Fargo and Minot could have 14 to 17 inches of snow. In metric, that’s a range of about 35 to 42 cm.

Yikes.

And we all know what happens when that American snow melts, eh?
