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

    John's Weather Journal November 20

    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. 

    Wind Forecast for Winnipeg

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

    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. 

    There is a weak front that moves through overnight tonight. 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 in the 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.

    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. 

    Futurecast for Tonight

    Snowfall Warning in Effect for Today/Tonight

    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.

    Winds get strong again on Thursday afternoon as another low tracks across the north. That low delivers another 5-10cm to the north and some flurries later in the day to the south. 

    Some of those flurries are left over on Friday morning but the afternoon gets sunny on Friday as we head into a chilly Saturday.

    Today, the north gets a break from snow as high pressure sits right over Thompson. So, while it’s sunny, it’s still very cold. Thompson’s high today is a mere -17 degrees, Churchill won’t get warmer than -19. 

    Here in the south we did get some freezing rain into the early hours so side streets and sidewalks were slick this morning. 

    In the southeast, occasional light snow and drifting snow continues with the strong winds. That improves later today as clearing gradually moves in from the west.  

    Winds drop off tonight but get strong again on Thursday afternoon as another low tracks across the north. That low delivers another 5-10cm to the north and some flurries later in the day to the south. 

    Some of those flurries are left over on Friday morning but the afternoon gets sunny on Friday as we head into a chilly Saturday.

    Let’s start in the north where, today, winds are still blowing snow around along the Hudson Bay coast. Visibility will be 2km or less through the day. The wind starts to drop off tonight as skies clear but tomorrow’s high in Churchill is only -23. 

    Here in the south we did get some freezing mist this morning. I’m getting reports of a few ice coated windshields. There was also some patchy fog. 

    Going forward, clouds thicken through the day as a low crosses central Manitoba, and we have a chance for a shower or two later this afternoon as temps hover around 3 degrees. That changes to a chance for flurries this evening and overnight. 

    We also get windy out of the northwest overnight and into Wednesday morning as the cold front moves across southern Manitoba.  

    There is a chance for some light snow across the southeast on Wednesday morning but the skies will clear gradually through the day from west to east. 

    Futurecast shows snow and strong winds in SE on Wednesday morning

    Wind Forecast for Winnipeg

    Tuesday: SW @ 10 this afternoon.

    Wednesday: NW @ 30/50 in the morning.   N @ 20/30 in the afternoon.

    Thursday:  E @ 15 in the morning.  SE @ 30/50 in the afternoon.

    Friday: SW @ 20/30 in the morning.  NW @ 10 in the afternoon.

    Could be an interesting commute on Tuesday morning. I’ll be watching for some patchy fog and 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. 

    Wind Forecast for Winnipeg

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

    Wednesday:  NW @ 30/50 in the morning.  NW @ 30/40 in the afternoon.

    Thursday: SE @ 20 in the morning.  S @ 40/60 in the afternoon
