Heavy snow falling in Parkland; Interlake braces for hit

  • Print

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the RM of Bifrost in the Interlake, which includes the communities of Arborg, Riverton, Hnausa and Hecla.

The warning calls for heavy snow today as snow has developed from western Manitoba to the Interlake. Increasing northerly winds will draw colder air southward through the day allowing the snow to begin to accumulate over the warning area during the day and this evening.

By tonight, it is expected the warning area will experience 10 to 15 cm of new snow, with 20 to 25 cm possible across the northern Riding Mountain National Park and Duck Mountain Provincial Park

As of 10 a.m., Environment Canada said the public reported 15 cm of snow in McCreary and 20 cm in Dauphin.

Strong northerly winds with this system could cause reduced visibility in blowing snow over open areas.

The snow is expected to taper off from the southwest tonight as the low pulls northeastward into Ontario.

A spring storm is also tracking across southern Manitoba and will be pulling in colder air from the north throughout the day. Rain has spread over Southeastern Manitoba this morning and will continue much of the day.

Now that former cabinet minister Theresa Oswald has entered the NDP leadership race, do you believe the "gang of five" rebel ministers were right to publicly criticize Premier Greg Selinger's leadership?
