WINNIPEG – After an unseasonably warm fall, colder temperatures are finally here, and with that could come the first snowfall of the season.
We’re already looking at potentially the latest first measurable snowfall in recorded history for Winnipeg, but that run could end tonight, according to Global News weather specialist Mike Koncan.
“It’s going to be quite light, we’re not going to see a huge dumping all at once. We’re likely to get under five centimetres by the morning and then through the day tomorrow. Just really light and consistent through the day, it doesn’t look like we’re going to be seeing it get heavy or anything.”
Having said all that, it won’t stick around for long because the temperature should jump above the freezing mark. And as for road conditions, they should be fine.
“I don’t think the snow is going to be heavy enough that it’s really going to cause limited visibility or anything like that. It’ll be a nice appetizer for big storms that we’re going to be seeing later in the winter.”
Areas west of the city could be dealing with some slush.
