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

    John's Weather Journal December 5

    Winds stay strong through Tuesday. There won’t be much in the way of snow falling but blowing and drifting snow will continue to pose a hazard in open areas. 

    Highways have now opened to the east into Ontario but conditions are still tricky at the least. 

    Behind this storm, temperatures will be much colder than we have been used to. Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday only reach -11 and -12. Wednesday will be a brighter day as winds ease gradually in the afternoon. 

    Looking at our weather for later in the week and we have more cloud cover over us for Thursday and Friday and there is another band of light snow moving through the southeast Thursday night and early Friday. 

    Temps will warm up on the weekend but cool down again for the beginning of next week.

    This is the Colorado Low I was talking about last week for the Dakotas and Minnesota. It’s catching the southeast corner of the province in a big way today. That’s where we have a snowfall warning in effect. 

    Conditions are the worst today in that part of the province. Whiteshell, Sprague regions will get 15cm initially, then another 2-4cm tonight into Tuesday. Winds will also be very strong so visibility will be reduced to near zero. 

    Satellite and Radar as of 1pm Monday

    We’ll likely pick up 3 and 5 cm in the upper Red River Valley today, but it’s more about the wind. Winds will pick up to 50 gusting to 70 later today. Expect winter storm or blizzard conditions on highways across the south. 

    Winds stay strong through Tuesday. There won’t be much in the way of snow falling but blowing snow will continue to pose a hazard in open areas. 

    Behind this storm, temperatures will really plummet. Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday only reach -11 and -12. Wednesday will be a brighter day as winds ease gradually.

    After a sunny start to the day, the clouds are taking over our Friday afternoon. Daytime highs across the south will continue to be slightly above zero on this afternoon and right through the weekend. 

    Following some clearing tonight, Saturday will be a brighter day and mild again with winds not stronger that about 20km/h. Saturday night though, more cloud moves in and stick around for several days. 

    I see a good chance for some light snow Sunday night into Monday morning. We’ll likely pick up 2-3cm in that snowfall. Winds also pick up on Monday so there could be some blowing and drifting later in the day. 

    That Monday weather marks a significant change in the temperature pattern. We turn colder, not just here in the south, but across the north as well. 

    By mid next week, Daytime highs will be a few degrees below seasonal values instead of slightly above. 

    I also see the potential for a snow and blowing snow event around the Thursday time frame. I’ll keep you all posted on that one.

    After yesterday’s crazy clipper, we have a fairly mundane weather pattern over us. Skies will clear west to east today so expect the sunshine to show up early in the afternoon here in the Red River Valley.  

    With a clear sky overnight and some moisture on the ground along with light winds, there is a chance for some patchy fog overnight into Friday morning. 

    Dew point temps and air temps at the surface overnight will be very close. Relative humidity will be between  97% and 100%. 

    Friday starts with sunshine (unless the fog forms) but clouds roll in again later in the day. Daytime highs across the south will continue to be slightly above zero on Friday and right through the weekend. 

    Saturday, expect a mix of sun and cloud. Sunday is a little more grey in advance of another low headed our way. 

    I see a chance for some light snow Sunday night into Monday morning. 

    By mid next week, we’ll be wearing the heavier coats once again.

    Wednesday will be a generally cloudy day with another mild afternoon at +2. That’s not even close to the whole weather story though.

    Another fast moving clipper is tracking across the south. Winds will be very gusty out of the south at first, then switching to the northwest as a cold front passes. 

    A special weather statement is in effect for the winds and for the rain changing to wet snow this evening. 

    Some of that snow will blow around and reduce visibility, although at warmer temps, wet snow is less likely to reduce visibility to zero. Still, it will be nasty in open areas this evening and possibly slippery on highways. 

    Satellite/Radar as of 2pm

    By Thursday morning, the low is well east and skies will clear west to east through the day. 

    Daytime highs will continue to be slightly above zero right through the weekend.
