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

    John's Weather Journal February 12

    We start the work week with another cold day, but it’s a little easier to take knowing that our temps are going to ‘bump up’ through the middle of the week. 

    The wind starts to pick up overnight into Tuesday as the temp warms from a low of -23 to about -17 for the morning rush hour. Into the afternoon, winds are gusting to 60km/h out of the south as the temp soars to -5. 

    Wednesday is even milder at -2 in the afternoon but winds shift to the northwest as the cold front (very cold front) pushes through. 

    Expect some light snow along the front as winds go northwest and temps drop into the evening. 

    By Thursday morning, we are back into the mid minus 20s and back into the sunny and cold weather for a couple of days.

    The colder than normal weather pattern persists over much of the eastern prairies. If you like sunshine though, you love this day. Expect a breezy -15 for a high this afternoon in Winnipeg. 

    All across the south, we can expect highs in the mid minus teens. 

    In the far northeast, a blizzard warning is in effect for the Hudson Bay coast including Churchill. Conditions are deteriorating and won’t start to improve until much later in the day. 

     

    Blizzard Warning for Hudson Bay Coast
     

    There is a slight moderation for the weekend with highs of -12 on Saturday and -13 on Sunday. The upper ridge isn’t quite making this far east which would help moderate those temps a little more for the weekend. 

    It’s also very dry. I don’t see any big snowfalls for the next couple of days but we’ll likely see some scattered flurries in the southeast on Saturday night into Sunday, followed by a cloudy and windy afternoon on Sunday. 

    The next chance for snow after that is on Wednesday. I’m tracking a developing clipper that looks like it will hit the southernmost part of the province with a few centimetres. I’ll watch that one carefully early in the week.

    The colder than normal weather pattern persists over much of the eastern prairies. If you like sunshine though, you love this weather. 

    In the far northeast, extreme cold warnings have been replaced by a blizzard warning for the Hudson Bay coast including Churchill. Conditions will deteriorate tonight into Friday with blizzard conditions expected to last through the day.

    Here in the south, daytime highs will struggle to warm past the mid minus teens on Thursday and Friday. 

    There is a slight moderation for the weekend with highs of -11 on Saturday and -13 on Sunday. The upper ridge isn’t quite making this far east which would help moderate those temps a little more for the weekend. 

    It’s also very dry. I don’t see any big snowfalls for the next couple of day but we could see some flurries in the southeast on Saturday night into Sunday, followed by a cloudy and windy afternoon on Sunday. 

    Then, a few more flurries later on Monday.

    Here in the south, daytime highs will struggle to warm past the mid minus teens as we make it through the work week. At least the wind isn’t as strong today as it was Monday.

    After today, get the sunglasses ready and keep them with you. Bright skies here in the south Wednesday through Friday. 

    There is a slight moderation for the weekend with highs of -13 on Saturday and -9 on Sunday. 

    It’s also very dry. I don’t see any big snowfalls for this week or through the weekend.

    We are in for the long haul as far as the chillier than normal temps are concerned. It’s even colder in the north but the only spots as of 1pm Monday with an Extreme Cold Warning in place are Gillam and Shamattawa. 

    Here in the south, daytime highs will struggle to warm past the mid minus teens as make it through the work week. 

    There is a slight moderation for the weekend with high of -13 on Saturday and -9 on Sunday. 

    It’s also very dry. I don’t see any big snowfalls for this week or through the weekend.

    Well, it’s Groundhog Day and the messages are mixed. Winnipeg Wyn is predicting at least six more weeks of winter. Manitoba Merv, a puppet, apparently indicates we’ll have an early spring, but it’s a puppet!  

    I choose to trust the science instead of the rodent when it comes to long term weather prediction, and the science is saying 6 more weeks of winter. 

    This light snow across the south this morning won’t add up to very much at all. Expect a dusting to a centimetre at the most. It’s making roads and highways a little greasy though.

    I’m watching another low that will spread some snow though North Dakota Friday night into Saturday morning. Originally, it looked like it would stay to the south of the border. That has changed in the forecast models. 

    The southwest will pick up a few cms on Saturday morning and that band of snow may travel far enough north to hit Winnipeg, but about a 40% chance at this point. 

    That system quickly slumps southward in the afternoon so expect sunshine for the second half of the day. It’ll be cold though. Highs will struggle to get past -21 or so. 

    Sunday is milder at -16 but the winds get gusty in the afternoon, west 30 to 50km/h. There is also a chance of a flurry on Sunday afternoon. 

    As we head through the next work week, our weather looks quiet but chilly. Lows will be into the mid minus 20s and highs will be in the mid minus teens right through the week.

    If you like sunshine, you’ll love this day. It is a cold one though, all across the province. Highs in the south will struggle to get past -20, in the northeast, highs will be closer to -30 today. 

    That colder air in the north will swing southward into Friday so extreme cold warnings may be issued tonight for parts of central Manitoba as well as the north. 

    As a trough also slumps southward on Friday, expect some very light snow in the morning, tapering to flurries in the afternoon, followed by clearing in the evening. I’m not expecting much more than a centimetre or so. 

    Projected Snow Accumulation up to Friday Evening
     
    The weekend will be sunny but you’ll have to dress for the chilly weather, especially on Saturday when highs stay in the -20 range again. 

    Sunday is milder at -15 but the winds get gusty in the afternoon, west 30 to 50km/h.

    The sun returns, and the blowing snow continues. Winds will gust to 60km/h this afternoon and early evening so blowing and drifting snow is still an issue into the evening hours in open areas. We can also expect a few flurries this evening.  

    As I've been saying, this is an extended cold snap. Highs on Thursday will be in the minus 20s. Overnight lows will be in the mid to low minus 20s through the weekend and well into next week. 

    In the north over the next couple of days, lows will be around the mid minus 30s and daytime highs will struggle to warm past -25.
