Milder weather but with it comes snow, wind and slick roads

  • Print

Mother Nature is getting ready to throw the kitchen sink at us.

Today is starting off with clouds, and with winds becoming south at 40 km/h gusting to 60 km/h by this evening, while the temperatures should fall from -4 C to -9 C.

The light snow will end later this morning, however, the overnight flurries have created hazardous driving conditions on some highways and roads in southern Manitoba.

The Trans-Canada Highway east to the Ontario border is ice-covered and slippery on some sections, while the stretch heading west from Winnipeg to the Saskatchewan border is party ice-covered, with snow-packed sections around MacGregor and Austin.

The Perimeter Highway has blowing snow, some icy spots and accumulated drifts.

The mercury should rise to -3 C by Thursday morning with winds south at 30 km/h under cloudy skies. There’s sure to be a little bit of melting as the temperature hits 0 C.

Friday could see some flurries and blowing snow under cloudy skies and a high of -13 C.

The weekend and early next week should be nothing but sun and bone-chilling, below-normal temperatures. The forecast high on Saturday is -22 C and it won’t get any better than -17 C on Monday.

Poll

Now that former cabinet minister Theresa Oswald has entered the NDP leadership race, do you believe the "gang of five" rebel ministers were right to publicly criticize Premier Greg Selinger's leadership?
