Spring forecast calls for more winter today

Spring will surely come to Manitoba someday, but it won’t be today.

So far school closures today include the Border Land School Division in southern Manitoba.

The snow shows no sign of stopping in Winnipeg this morning.

Environment Canada is calling for a truly miserable Monday, with snow, blowing snow and winds gusting up to 60 km/h. Forecasters say 2-4 cm of snow will fall on Winnipeg by the time the day is done, with a forecast high of 1 C.

There’s also some light snow in the forecast for tonight, with temperatures dipping to -9 and winds continuing to gust up to 30 km/h.

Highway conditions outside the Manitoba capital are miserable. A three-car crash has been reported on Highway 15 between Dugald and Anola Monday morning and visibility is being reported as poor on highways south of Winnipeg, including Highway 75.

As bad as the weather is in southern Manitoba today, it’s much, much worse in North Dakota. The state was hammered by a snowstorm on Sunday, with as much as 45 cms. falling in some areas, increasing concerns of spring flooding.

Travel is still not being advised in most areas of the state, although officials did re-open I-29 between Grand Forks and Fargo on Monday morning.

The weather for the rest of this week in Manitoba will gradually begin to get slightly better, but there’s still no point in dusting off the golf clubs and channelling your newly crowned Masters champion Adam Scott just yet.

The forecast high for Tuesday is just -3 C and Wednesday is expected to get to just 1 C. Thursday is expected to get to 3 C and Friday to 2 C, with highs of 5 C and 6 C expected for Saturday and Sunday respectively.
