    The light snow we expected here in the Red River Valley (and south), will continue to let up through the early afternoon. Cloud will gradually break up this evening. 

    Radar and Satellite at 12:50p.m. Snow moves south.

    Thursday is another cloudy day and I’m tracking another mild, messy and windy clipper on track for Thursday night and Friday. 

    It’ll start with a chance of freezing rain Thursday evening, then drop some rain Friday morning. Temps will be warmest in the morning on Friday, then drop in the afternoon with a chance for wet flurries and gusty winds later in the day.

    Highway travel Friday night could be affected by this system. I’ll watch carefully and keep you all posted. 

    Saturday is likely the next time we’ll need sunglasses here in the southeast.

    There is another quick moving little disturbance headed our way for Wednesday. Expect more cloud cover than sun and a quick 2-3cms of snow in the afternoon here in the southeast. Not much wind with this one. 

    I’m tracking another one of these mild, messy and very windy clipper son track for later in the week. 

    It’ll start with a chance of freezing rain Thursday evening and bring some rain Friday early, then snow and wind gusts to 70km/h on Friday later in the day.

    Looking back at that clipper that moved through yesterday and we picked up 12 cm in Flin Flon and Grand Rapids as expected, but the bigger story was the wind across the south and the poor visibility due to blowing snow last evening. 

    The highest recorded wind gust was in Pilot Mound at 98km/h. Brandon had a gust at 95km/h and Winnipeg’s peak gust was 74km/h. 

    Winds will continue to drop off through the day today under a fairly sunny sky and a high of -7 in the capital. Brandon only reaches -10 this afternoon. 

    In the north, we still have a blizzard warning in effect for the rest of the day. Winds are gusting to 90km/h along the Hudson Bay coast.

    A quick moving clipper blasts through the central part of the province today and will drop 10-15cm of snow from The Pas/Flin Flon in the west across through Grand Rapids and on into Berens River and Poplar River. 

    The cold front attached to that low will cut across the south late this afternoon and provide us with a rude reality check that follows a high of +2 today. 

    Winds will get very gusty as we start to see rain showers at first, then occasional snow and blowing snow through the evening. I’m expecting wind gusts to at least 70km/h, possibly higher as temps plummet across the south. 

    Evening sustained winds (add 30km/h for gust factor)

    This quick and sudden drop in temperature behind the cold front may produce slick conditions on bridges during the afternoon rush hour and into the evening as well.  

    Tuesday brings the sun back but temperatures will feel more like the season at about -7 in the afternoon. The rest of the week looks chilly until we get to Friday when more messy weather and another brief warm up happens. 

    Wind Forecast for Winnipeg

    Monday: NW @ 30/40 this afternoon.   NW @ 50/80 in the evening. 

    Tuesday: NW @ 30/40 in the morning.   W @ 20 in the afternoon.

    Wednesday:  S @ 10 in the morning.  SW @ 10 in the afternoon.

    Thursday: Light Wind in the morning.  SE @ 20/25 in the afternoon.

    There is a weak front that moves through overnight Friday into Saturday. It will produce a nocturnal band of light snow through the Interlake and down through the northern Red River Valley, including Winnipeg. 

    We may be cleaning up a couple of centimetres on Saturday morning. 

    Saturday is a cooler day with highs between -8 and -10 across the south. The Santa Claus Parade starts at 5pm downtown and, at that time, we’ll be close to the daytime high with a partly cloudy sky and a northwest wind at 20 to 30km/h. 

    The kids will need to wear their warmest boots and snowsuits for the parade. 

    There is another band of light snow pushing through the south overnight into Sunday morning. We’ll get to -5 with a sun/cloud mix on Sunday.

    Monday will be a mild and messy day with a high of +2 and a chance for afternoon and evening rain or wet snow here in the southeast. 

    Once that system passes, we are back to chilly conditions Tuesday through Thursday next week.

    The low pressure system that dropped the 10-15cm of snow in the north yesterday is departing to the northeast section of the province. Drier air is working its way in from the west. 

    Expect lots of sunshine across the province today with the exception of the northeast where we still have cloud cover and some snow falling. 

    Here in the south, I’m sticking with an afternoon high of -4 in the sunshine for Winnipeg.

    Another low pressure system is working it’s way across the north today bringing about 10-15cm of snow. There is a snowfall warning in effect for the central part of the province and part of the north as well.

    That same system will bring some flurries and gusty winds to the south later today. Into the overnight period, there is a chance for some ice pellets mixed in with the light snow. 

    Friday is a bright day across the south with a high of -4 degrees. 

    We cool off Saturday for the Santa Claus Parade. It starts at 5pm downtown and, at that time, the temperature should be around -8 with a northwest wind at 20 to 30km/h. 

    There is another band of light snow pushing through the south overnight into Sunday morning.
