Clear and cold today, but more snow on the way

  • Print

It promises to warm up -- just in time for a little more shoveling.

Environment Canada is calling for clear sky and cold temperatures in Winnipeg and the surrounding area this morning, before a system rolls in bringing more snow to the region. The south wind increasing to 40 km/h gusting to 60 km/h means an increased chance of blowing snow in open spots, as well.

All schools in the Hanover School Division are closed to students today, due to extreme cold. Teachers are expected to report for work at their school.

Today’s high is -12 C, with an extreme wind chill of -40 early in the day.

In fact, most of Southern Manitoba remains under a wind chill advisory for this morning, meaning frostbite could occur on exposed skin in less than 10 minutes. The extreme wind chill warnings are expected to be lifted as the temperatures moderate throughout the day.

For tonight, expect more snow, with accumulations nearing five centimetres. The temperature should rise to approximately -5 C overnight.

More snow (and blowing snow) is in the forecast for Friday. Winds figure to remain strong from the north (40 km/h gusting to 60 km/h) most of the day. Friday’s forecast daytime high is -3 C.

Saturday, look for periods of snow and a high of -14 C.
