Slowly but surely, those April flowers should start to show themselves.

A day after dodging the bullet of a spring blizzard, Winnipeg should see sunny skies and a below normal high of -7 C this afternoon. Despite the warm sun it will still be a little chilly, though, thanks to a north wind 30 km/h.

Tonight, a low of -17 C is expected.

Things should start to warm up as the week moves along, with temperatures above the freezing mark starting Thursday and continuing through the weekend. A high of 9 C is forecast for Sunday.

As for the blizzard that missed Winnipeg Monday, the southeastern corner of the province did get a blast of winter. The Sprague area got about 20 centimetres of snow, while communities in and around the Red River Valley (Morden, Winkler and Altona) only saw a few centimetres of the white stuff.

Travel in southeastern Manitoba looks to be returning to normal, as well. Highway 12 from Steinbach to the U.S. border has been reopened this morning.

Those planning to head down to North Dakota take note: I-29 from the border to Fargo has also been reopened.
