Manitobans can expect more snow today

Snow squall warnings and periodic flurries: there’s your forecast for Winnipeg and the surrounding regions today.

According to Environment Canada, Winnipeg can expect a Wednesday filled with flurries and a northwest wind blowing at 20 km/h. The white stuff should start falling this morning and will be on and off again throughout the day and into the evening.

Today’s high is expected to be 3 C; tonight’s low -2.

Meanwhile, areas around Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba are under a snow squall warning until Thursday morning. Hecla, Ashern, Fisher River, Arborg, Victoria Beach, the R.M. of St. Clements, Grand Beach, Brokenhead, Beausejour, Dugald, Bissett, Pine Falls, Pinawa, Lac du Bonnet, Whiteshell and the R.M. of Alexander (including Belair Provincial Forest) are included in the warning.

A snow squall can occur when cold air passes over relatively warm lake temperatures, resulting in a brief but heavy snowfall. Up to 15-25 centimetres of snow is expected in the Hecla Island region today, with lower amounts (10-15 cm) in the other areas.

Motorists should take caution on roads and highways near these communities, as near-zero visibility conditions can occur within these narrow squalls within seconds.

Environment Canada also says weaker bands of lake-effect flurries are likely southeast of Lake Manitoba today and tonight.
