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.
