    John's Weather Journal March 30

    Well, today is likely the best day of this week to get outside here in the south. We'll enjoy an abundance of filtered sunshine and a warm high of 9 degrees.
    There is a low pressure system dropping up to 20 cm of snow by the end of today in the far north.
    As that low moves east, another follows right behind and has a more southerly track. A good feed of Pacific moisture interacting with cold air farther north brings wintry conditions back to southern Manitoba through the second half of the week. 
    There is a chance of a passing shower on Tuesday early but the afternoon turns out sunny and windy.
    Wednesday and Thursday bring rain and wet snow mixed. Friday is a colder day with wet snow that could have have us shoveling the driveway again. 
    The phase of precipitation (rain or snow or even freezing rain) will be tough to nail down days in advance. It will depend highly on the track of the low and the temperature profile above us. Stay tuned. 
    Tonight, we are bringing you a live local 30 minute newscast on CBC Manitoba. Janet Stewart will host from our downtown studio while I will be live with all your weather information while practicing physical distancing.

    Weather update from the CBC Sauder Home Studio

    John's Weather Journal March 27

    Get ready for our afternoons to start feeling like spring. The sun is even packing more punch due to sun angles being a lot higher these days. Won't be long before we are talking about the UV Index. 
    Expect a sunny high of 6 or 7 degrees across most of the south on Friday afternoon. A similar day is scheduled for Saturday. Of course, I'm talking about southern Manitoba. In the north, it's a completely different picture.
    We have two separate lows crossing the north in the next couple of days. The first spreads 2-4 cms of snow in northern communities today followed by gusty winds and blowing snow tonight, especially around the Hudson Bay coast. 
    The next low crosses the north on Saturday spreading an additional 5-10 cms of snow to most regions. 
    Here in the south, the sunny weather takes us through the weekend with a slightly cooler and breezy Sunday on the way. I have pushed the rain/snow mix from Monday night back into Tuesday. 
    The middle of next will be a lot cooler in southern Manitoba and somewhat unsettled. 
    Tonight, we are back to bringing you a live local 30 minute newscast on CBC Manitoba. Janet Stewart will host from our downtown studio while I will be live from my back yard. 
    I continue to work from home but will still be on the radio, updating this blog, and recording weather videos to post on my Facebook (johnsaudercbc). I have set up a weather studio in my basement (CBC Sauder Studio) and it seems to be working fairly well. I'll attempt to attach a weather video on this blog each weekday afternoon. 
    As a community, to keep ourselves and each other safe, we need to separate ourselves as much as possible during this pandemic and, for this job, working from home is a good option.

    We will see clearing this afternoon as this morning's band of snow moves east toward Ontario. 
    We are heading into a milder stretch here in the south for a few days. Friday will be sunny and breezy with a high temp of 6 degrees. Saturday will be similar but the winds pick up on Sunday out of the north gusting to 50 km/h.
    Meanwhile in the north, a couple of quick low pressure systems, one Friday and another on Saturday, will supply more snow to the region. Winter is not over yet across northern Manitoba. 
    As we head into early next week, look for some rain to develop Monday late in the day, then cooler and unsettled weather is with us on Tuesday.

  • My weathercast form the CBC Sauder Studio for March 25th

    John's Weather Journal March 25

    As the sunshine becomes abundant on this Wednesday, winds drop off this afternoon. This will be the cool day (temperature-wise) of the week with a projected high of -3 degrees. 
    Before we get into a stretch of sunny days with snowbank eating temperatures, we have another cloudy day on Thursday. Temps on Thursday afternoon will be right around the freezing mark but cloud and a few flurries will cover the Red River Valley through to supper time. Western regions will likely see some sunshine in the afternoon. This far east, we'll have to wait until the evening hours for our clearing to happen. 
    Here in the south, Friday starts a stretch of 3 days with sunny skies and temps up around 5 or 6 degrees in the afternoon. 
    Friday in northern Manitoba looks cloudy with some light snow. 
    I continue to work from home but will still be on the radio, updating this blog, and recording weather videos to post on my Facebook (johnsaudercbc). I have set up a weather studio in my basement (CBC Sauder Studio) and it seems to be working fairly well. I'll attempt to attach a weather video on this blog this afternoon. Look for the aviator bear next to the big screen. He has a different accessory each day. 
    As a community, to keep ourselves and each other safe, we need to separate ourselves as much as possible during this pandemic and, for this job, working from home is a good option. Thank you CBC MB  for helping to make this possible. 

    We don't know how long CBC will need to consolidate Television News resources. This is temporary. Like this pandemic, this too will pass. For now CBC is doing what it feels it needs to do to serve Canadians from coast to coast to coast in a most unusual time.
    In the meantime remember CBC Manitoba is here for you - on CBC Radio One - 89.3 in Winnipeg, on cbc.ca/manitoba and on your CBC News app, and also on social media in anyway we can.
    You will find my video forecasts each weekday on my Facebook weather page at: www.facebook.com/johnsaudercbc
