John Sauder, CBC's meteorologist in Manitoba, keeps track of weather moving across the province.

    John's Weather Journal November 13

    I hope you all have a chance to get outside today. The sunshine will stick around here across the south and temps will be closer to seasonal. 

    Speaking of the seasonal normals, the normal high is now below zero. 

    Things get interesting tonight as patchy fog starts to form overnight. I’ll also be watching for some freezing rain in the morning hours. Temps aloft will be above zero while at the surface, we’ll have a shallow layer of below freezing air. 

    Futurecast (RPM Model) shows freezing rain (pink) farther north on Tuesday

    On Tuesday, a low crosses the central prairies so we’ll have a shift in winds late in the day. The warm air aloft is gone, and any precip that falls should be snow in the evening. That low delivers a swath of 5-10 cm farther north. 

    Today in the far north, expect 5-10cm  and some gusty winds with blizzard conditions for a couple of hours in the Churchill area. Behind the system, northerly winds get frisky for about six hours so blowing snow will be an issue in Churchill in the night.

    Monday: S @ 15 this afternoon.

    Tuesday: S @ 25/30 in the morning.   W @ 20/25 in the afternoon.

    Right on time, the snow started in the Red River Valley and, immediately, the visibility dropped. Winds are gusting to 60km/h so, at YWG, we are down to 2km. 

    This snow will continue through the afternoon (2-4cm) and the winds don’t drop off until the overnight period. That means blowing snow will still be an issue this evening.  

    By Saturday morning, winds will have lightened up considerably. Saturday is Remembrance Day and looking like a cloudy day with a few flurries but no additional accumulation.

    Temps should be around -5 to -6 at 10-11am in case you are attending an outdoor ceremony. Expect a daytime high of -3.  

    Sunday is the Bomber game against the Edmonton Eskimos. Expect fairly sunny conditions at game time with an afternoon high, and game time temp, of -5. 

    We’ll warm up to above zero temps for Monday and Tuesday, and may even see some rain showers on Tuesday. 

    Just an early heads up for later next week. Not all of the forecast models agree on the track but there is a system that bears watching for the Thursday/Friday time frame. 

    It could pack a wintry punch but it’s early to nail down the affects on the eastern prairies at this point.

    More weather moves through tomorrow with winds already strong in the morning and snow developing through the middle part of the day.

    It’s not a lot of snow but Friday’s winds will gust to 60km/h so visibility will be an issue in open areas.

    Lots going on this weekend. Saturday is Remembrance Day and looking like a cloudy day with a few flurries and much lighter winds. I have adjusted my forecast high slightly based on the cloud cover and the snow on the ground too.

    With the sunshine and light wind, it’s actually a fairly comfortable record breaking cold day. That’s right, -23.7 at YWG this morning and that’s a new record low temperature for this date. 

    Here’s the odd thing. Last year on this date, we set a record high temp at 18.8 degrees. Same day, one year apart. I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed that coincidence.

    Thursday is a brighter day but still chilly with highs across the south in the -8 to -9 range. 

    I’m tracking another disturbance headed this way for Friday which will likely bring more snow in the afternoon and windy conditions. There is still some forecast model disagreement on the track of that band of snow. There is potential for a few centimetres.

    Winds will be gusting to 60km/h on Friday and that strong southerly wind will lead to a milder weekend. 

    Lots going on this weekend. Saturday is Remembrance Day and I have brought a little more cloud into my Saturday forecast along with a chance of Flurries. Temps should be around -5 at 10-11am in case you are attending an outdoor ceremony. 

    Sunday is the Bomber game against the Eskis. Expect fairly sunny conditions at game time with an afternoon high of -4.

    The light snow here in the Winnipeg area will continue through the early afternoon. The snow closer to the lakes on the southern shores will continue off and on for the rest of the day. 

    Northwest winds will actually get stronger overnight so we’ll continue to see lake effect snow until winds quiet down into Thursday. 

    Thursday is a brighter day but still chilly with highs across the south in the -8 to -9 range.

    Friday:  SE @ 25/30 in the morning.  S @ 30/60 in the afternoon.

    Saturday: S @ 15/20 in the morning.  NW @ 20/30 in the afternoon.

    We'll see a lot of cloud and a few flurries into Wednesday morning. I’m not expecting enough snow to shovel, but a dusting is certainly in the cards. 

    Temps remain “Decemberlike” through the week as I track another disturbance headed this way for Friday. 

    Friday will be a cloudy and windy day with occasional flurries. Forecast models are in some disagreement as to how much snow we’ll see, but if we see any at all, it’ll be blown around by a wind gusting to 60km/h out of the south. 

    That strong southerly wind will lead to a milder weekend.

    I had to check the calendar this morning. Yup, November 7th! Feels more like mid December. Makes it easier to watch all the Christmas ads on TV I guess. 

    We’ll see the odd sunny break today in the south but it’s a high level cloud cover over much of this part of the province. Generally, the south is under a high pressure ridge today. 

    That changes tonight as we see some cloud and a few flurries overnight into Wednesday morning. I’m not expecting enough snow to shovel, but a dusting is certainly in the cards.

    Tuesday brings a mix of sun and cloud and, again, some late day flurries into Wednesday. I’m not expecting much in the way of accumulation.

    It’ll certainly feel like winter is here this week. Daytime highs will be below zero for the rest of the week although there is some moderation toward the weekend. 

    We could also see more flurries on Friday.
