Winter Storm Weather Statement for Winnipeg

Manitoba PostNews

WINNIPEG, MB – Environment Canada issued a special weather statement because of a major winter storm that is expected to hit Winnipeg beginning Sunday evening.

A entirely different storm from Saskatchewan will spread some accumulating snow into southern Manitoba this weekend.

The more significant system, a Colorado Low, is expected to hit southern Manitoba late Sunday. This winter storm will bring heavy snow, strong winds, and blowing snow to much of southern Manitoba and possibly persisting into Tuesday.

You can track the storm by visiting the Manitoba Post weather section and clicking on the “radar”.

Winter Storm Set to Hit Winnipeg

Environment Canada says Colorado Lows can be notoriously difficult to forecast in general and there is an unusually high degree of uncertainty with this particular weather system.

However, total snowfall amounts for Winnipeg could be 15 to 30 cm with heavier local snowfall amounts possible.
