A weather front is currently dropping rain and snow in parts of southern Manitoba and northwestern Ontario.

Environment Canada issued a severe weather advisory for southeastern Manitoba, particularly the areas around Pinawa and Seven Sisters.

An intense low-pressure system that moved in from northern Minnesota is bringing in plenty of rain and cold air. That rain is changing to snow, with amounts of anywhere from 10 to 20 centimetres by the end of the day.

The winds will be howling, with gusts of up to 70 km/h.

In Winnipeg, there will likely be some of the dreaded white stuff on your lawn tonight or Friday.

An Environment Canada forecast for later today calls for flurries, at times heavy, with a low of zero and 40 km/h winds, gusting to 60.

The forecast for Winnipeg on Friday is a high of 4, with wet flurries, and wind from the north at 40 km/h, gusting to 60.

Saturday is expected to be sunny, with a low of minus 4, and a high of 8.
