Don't be fooled, cold snap coming

  • Print

Take care driving in fog this morning and leave extra time to scrape your windshield.

Then get your shovels ready for Friday.

Heavy fog moved across southern Manitoba this morning thanks to mild temperatures. The fog will dissipate later this morning. Temperatures should reach 2 C today under a persistent cloud cover.

Then 2-4 centimetres of snow will fall starting this evening.

Periods of snow are expected Friday, ending by early afternoon. Winds of 60 km/h, gusting to 80 will swirl the snow around, and fall to 30 by late afternoon and be light in the evening. Temperatures will fall to -16 C in the afternoon, for a wind chill of -27.

Saturday will be cold with a high of -15 C, and ditto Sunday, with a high of -13 C. It won't turn mild again until mid-week.
