Winnipeg is expected to receive some wintry weather today.
Just when it started to seem like spring with warmer temperatures and melting snow, another two to four centimeters of the white stuff is on the way, Environment Canada says. Snow is supposed to start falling this morning and end late this afternoon when it will be mixed with rain. Today’s high is expected to hit 2 C with a 20 km/h east wind.
Tonight, there’s a 30 per cent chance of flurries with a north wind and an overnight low of -6 C. Sunday is expected to be partly sunny with a high of -1 C and a 30-km/h north wind.
Temperatures are expected to be well below normal for the start of next week with highs of -8 C Monday and -6 C Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday’s high is expected to climb to 4 C, still far below the normal daytime high of 10 C for Winnipeg at this time of year.
And it's not just Winnipeg getting hit, winter is returning to the province in full force with a snowfall warning in effect for western Manitoba, including Minnedosa, Neepawa, Russell and Riding Mountain National Park to the eastern shore of Lake Manitoba and Ste. Rose, Gladstone, Alonsa and McCreary. Accumulations of about 10 cm are expected, Environment Canada says.
