    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.  

    Futurecast showing RPM model guidance keeping show to the north Friday

    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.

  • 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.

  • John's Weather Journal November 6

    Now that there is a snow cover on the ground, a sunny day isn’t really going to do the trick to warm us up. Fresh snow reflects about 95% of the incoming solar radiation. 

    Also, now that the clocks have changed back to standard time, our daytime high (in a typical weather pattern) will be earlier in the afternoon. Today, we only get to -7 which is the normal overnight low. 

    I’m watching a cold front that will swing through the central part of the province today. With it, some lake effect flurries on the east side of the lakes and possibly some flurries through the Red River Valley this evening.

    Get the shovels ready. A snowy system is moving through southern Manitoba today. 

    Futurecast Saturday Afternoon:

    There is a Snowfall Warning in effect for pretty much all of southern Manitoba. Generally, 5-10cm is what I'm expecting but as much as 15cm could accumulate depending on how much melts on contact. 

    The system tracks out of the province Saturday night dropping similar amounts in NW Ontario. 

    Behind the snow, temps will drop through the day on Sunday with a gusty northwest wind in the morning. 

    That takes us into much cooler weather for the first part of next week.

    Get the shovels ready. as a snowy system tracks through the southern part of the province today. 

    General amounts by Saturday evening should be in the 5-10cm range, although there’s potential for 15cms in the higher terrain to the west. 

    Futurecast Saturday Afternoon:

    Dauphin, Swan River, Minnedosa, and Riding Mountain regions could see totals up around 15cm.

    Friday starts with some sunshine but as we get into the afternoon, clouds thicken ahead of some snow Friday evening and overnight. 

    I think there’s a good chance for a coating on the ground by Saturday morning, then the wet snow continues through the day with a high of zero. Depending on how much melts on contact, there could be 5-10cms on the ground Saturday afternoon. 

    Get the shovels ready.  

    Futurecast Saturday Midday:

    Wind Forecast for Winnipeg

    Friday: Light Wind in the morning . SE @ 20 in the afternoon.

    Saturday:  E @ 20/25 in the morning.  S @ 20/25 in the afternoon.

    Not exactly what I would call a bright day across the south on Thursday. There will be a few sunny breaks and there is a slight chance of the shower off Lake Winnipeg, but no accumulation. 

    Under a partly cloudy sky tonight, we’ll drop to -10 degrees with light winds. Friday starts with some sunshine but as we get into the afternoon, clouds thicken ahead of some snow Friday evening and overnight.
