This must be the 'in like a lion' part

A water main break from several days ago has left a car stranded in the middle of the 600 block of St. John's Avenue. Ice on the road measuring up to 60 centimetres thick thick has been removed on the street but the frozen car has become a barrier to the water main break area.

Things may be getting warmer but winter isn’t quite done with us yet.

Environment Canada is forecasting some of the white stuff over the next couple days, starting sometime this morning. The heavy snow won’t start flying until later this afternoon. Approximately five centimetres is expected to fall throughout the day.

The winds should also pick up around noon, originating from the south 40 km/h gusting to 60 km/h. Be mindful of blowing snow in the Winnipeg and surrounding area, too, especially in open areas and on highways in and around the capital region.

Today’s high is -9 C.

Expect more snow this evening and through the night. The wind will diminish slightly and the temperature will actually rise throughout the night, climbing to -6 by the time you wake up.

The snow should end sometime Thursday morning, leading to a 60 per cent chance of flurries for the rest of the day. The high should reach -5 C, though the wind will switch from the south to the north as the day move along.

Friday’s forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of -14 C.
