    John's Weather Journal November 14

    Across the north today, there’s a low pressure system dropping up to 10cm of snow. That system moves east tonight.  

    Here in the south, as of 3pm, it’s -1 but the winds are gusting to almost 50km/h. We have had a few sunny breaks but that’s about it for today. 

    There’s another low moving through Saskatchewan today that will start to affect Manitoba overnight into Thursday morning. 

    With warm air aloft and below freezing air at the surface, we have a slight risk of freezing rain in the early hours. 

    Futurecast shows the risk for freezing rain (pink) Thursday morning.
     

    After that, a quick band of wet snow before winds get gusty out of the northwest Thursday afternoon. 

    Late day temps will fall bringing us back into the cooler than normal weather for a few days.

    There is a short-lived mild spell on the way but it’s still 24 hours away.

    Tuesday is still a little chilly at -8 with generally cloudy skies at first, then a mix of sun and cloud in the afternoon. 

    Then, the change! Wednesday warms to -1 in the afternoon with a mix of sun and cloud. 

    Thursday is the transition day back to cooler weather. We wake up to -5 in the morning, then post a +1 high in the early afternoon.

    It’s all dependent on when the cold front passes but it looks right now like that will happen around mid day so expect a falling temp in the afternoon along with a gusty northwest wind. 

    That passing system on Thursday also has potential to drop some freezing rain in the morning changing to light snow before lunch time. 

    Our weather turns back to the cold side of normal again for the weekend.

    That -17 this morning was “eye-opening” wasn’t it? Expect similar overnight temps tonight as skies will be partly cloudy to mainly clear. 

    The weather news this week is the warm up that is on the way for mid week. 

    Tuesday is still a little chilly at -6 (normal high now -1). Wednesday warms to -1 in the afternoon with a mix of sun and cloud. 

    Thursday is the transition day back to cooler weather. We wake up to -4 in the morning, then post a -1 high in the early afternoon.

    It’s all dependant on when the cold front passes but it looks right now like that happen around mid day so expect a falling temp in the afternoon along with a gusty northwest wind. 

    That passing system on Thursday will also deliver a few wet flurries. 

    Our weather turns back to the cold side of normal again for the weekend.

    John's Weather Journal November 9

    Nice to see the sun briefly appearing today. Winds are still generally north or northwest but they are easing a bit. That means less in the way of lake effect snow. 

    Near the lakes, some of the totals were closer to 30cm but those pockets of heavy snowfall were very isolated. 

    Here’s something mildly interesting. Two years ago, Nov 9, 2016, we had a record setting high temp at 18.8 degrees. One year ago today, we had a record setting low temp at -23.7 degrees. 

    Check out the temps on Nov 9th in 2016 and 2017
     

    We have a different kind of snowfall on the way for Saturday afternoon and evening. This snow is associated with a low pressure system from the west instead of being lake enhanced snowfall. 

    Earlier this week, it looked like that one would head into the Dakotas but now looks to be heading across southern Manitoba on the weekend. 

    Winds also get a little gusty later on Saturday so there could be some driving challenges in open areas. 

    Sunday - Remembrance Day - expect mid morning temperature of about -6 in the southeast along with cloudy skies and a few flurries.

    In the southwest on Sunday, expect a brighter sky and cooler temps around -10 at 11am. 

    Next week starts cool with daytime highs 5 or 6 degrees below the seasonal normal but there is a slightly milder air mass moving in for the second half of the week.

    I’ll also be tracking some more snow for Thursday.

    A hint of sunshine this morning but, as of noon, the flurries are happening again with a surface wind out of the west and winds just above us out of the northwest. 

    Expect on/off flurries for the remainder of the day. Temps remain cool at around -5 degrees in the Red River Valley and -7 degrees for highs in the Brandon region. 

    Temps will stay on the cold side of seasonal normal for the rest of the week, through the weekend, and well into next week. 

    Miss the sunshine? I sure do. Good news though. I’m expecting a much brighter day on Friday and a mix of sun and cloud on Saturday. 

    I don’t see any blinding snowstorms for southern Manitoba in the next week or so but we’ll likely see some flurries or light snow on Sunday.

    Thursday: N @ 10 this afternoon.  

    Friday:  NW @ 20/25 in the morning.   NW @ 15/20 in the afternoon. 

    Saturday:  SE @ 20/25 in the morning.  SE @ 20/30 in the afternoon.

    Sunday:  W @ 10/15 in the morning. NW @ 20/30  in the afternoon.

    It’s a cool but otherwise typical November day. Wednesday afternoon temps will be up around -4 under cloudy skies here in the southeast, cooler to the west. 

    Winds are still on the breezy side from the northwest so occasional flurries off the lakes can be expected through the night and through Thursday as well.  

    Because the jetstream is to the south of us (upper trough),temps will stay on the cold side of seasonal normal for the rest of the week, through the weekend, and well into next week. 

    I don’t see any blinding snowstorms for southern Manitoba in the next week or so but there is a hint of something significant forming at around the 10 day time frame (Nov 19/20). I’ll keep an eye on that one.

    The main band of snow has stayed west and south of the upper Red River Valley. Highways to the west are partly snow covered with icy patches and some blowing snow. Snow continues to fall in the southwest this afternoon. 

    Satellite and Radar as of 1pm Tuesday
     

    Here in Winnipeg, conditions are fairly dry but we can expect some wet flurries this afternoon as winds pick up and gust to 60 and temps fall to -1 by sundown. 

    Into Wednesday, we start the day with morning temps around -8 degrees and only recover to -4 by the afternoon. Winds will still be rather gusty from the northwest. 

    That northwest wind will also bring a few flurries off the lakes through the middle of the week. 

    Temps will get even colder toward the weekend with morning lows in minus double digits and daytime highs in the -8 to -9 range by early next week.

    We have some snow coming. The expected amounts vary across the province. Just about everybody will get the cold weather outbreak that follows.

    It starts in the west today and in the Red River Valley tonight as rain, then changes to snow into Tuesday. The west-central part of the province will see 10-20cm, That’s from Russell and Dauphin north through Flin Flon.

    Weather Alert in Effect for West-Central MB
     

    Expect 2-4cm by Tuesday night in Winnipeg and surrounding areas. The other part of the story is the wind, gusting to 60km/h Tuesday afternoon and evening. Highways will be a mess as the temps drop through the day on Tuesday.

    GEM model lays down 3cm in Wpg - much more to the west
     

    Into Wednesday, we start the day with morning temps around -8 degrees and only recover to -4 by the afternoon. Winds are still rather gusty from the northwest. 

    That northwest wind will also bring a few flurries off the lakes through the middle of the week. 

    For most of the province, this looks like the snowfall that stays on the ground for the foreseeable future. 

    Temp really take a cold turn behind the snowy system
