Put on your boots, it's going to be nice and slushy out there

  • Print

He ho! It’s going to be a perfect day for heading out and visiting the Festival du Voyageur (or doing any other sort of outdoor activity).

Environment Canada is calling for a high of 0 C today in Winnipeg, so if you are heading outside, some waterproof footwear will be in order. Drivers will probably be sliding around in slush.

Winds are gusting up to 60 kilometres an hour Sunday morning, but will lighten this afternoon. There is a chance of flurries, though, which could turn to freezing drizzle as the temperature warms up.

Manitoba highways range from bare to snow covered, depending on the wind conditions. That's likely to worsen as overcast skies are forecast to drop their load tonight: five to 10 centimetres of snow will start later this afternoon and continue overnight.

Take advantage of the nice weather because it’s not going to last. The temperature will drop overnight to -14 C and dip even lower during Louis Riel Day on Monday with a forecast high of -18 C. Environment Canada is calling for colder weather Tuesday with a high of -20 C predicted in Winnipeg.
