Snow, wind chill and warmer temperatures on the way

  • Print

Get ready for a little bit of everything weather-wise today.

Let’s start with all this white stuff. The periods of light snow will finally move out of the Winnipeg region sometime this morning, making way for sunny skies. Today’s high is -9 C.

The 30 km/h north wind  will also disappear, turning to a light breeze this afternoon. Before that slows, though, prepare for a wind chill in the -25 range.

And here’s something we haven’t seen in a while: Environment Canada has added a UV index of 3 (moderate) to the forecast today, as well.

Tonight’s low is expected to dip down to -22 C.

As far as the highways in southern Manitoba go, take caution if you have to head out today. Most of the roads are snow-packed and contain slippery sections, so give yourself some extra travel time and slow down.

The forecast for Saturday calls for a mix of sun and cloud and a high of -7 C.

Sunday will start to warm up significantly, with a daytime high of +2 C.
