WINNIPEG – The first blast of winter in Southern Manitoba is upon us.
Global News Weather Specialist Mike Koncan says it’s not going to be that ferocious, nor is it expected to last beyond Tuesday.
But he does says a combination of up to 5 centimeters of snow and other forms of mixed precipitation – including ice pellets in some areas of the city and outlying areas – will make today “easily the worst commute of the week.”
Koncan says snowfall warnings might pop up for the St. Anne to Pinawa regions east and south of Winnipeg with 5-10 centimeters expected.
For the city, Koncan says this morning’s snow will turn into light flurries this afternoon and evening, albeit with a risk of freezing drizzle.
“The rest of the week looks much nicer with melting temps, and even some sunshine for the weekend,” says Koncan. “And nothing is showing up on the weather models in the way of a major snowfall in the near future.”
