Snowfall warnings, special weather statements across Manitoba

No joke, April is beginning with a significant amount of snow for much of Manitoba and around southern Manitoba — if you don’t have much precipitation on Wednesday, you will on Thursday.

Snowfall warnings were issued by Environment and Climate Change Canada for throughout southwestern Manitoba on Tuesday in anticipation of 10-20 cm of snowfall on Thursday.

There will also likely be another 5-10 cm of snowfall Thursday night leaving many of the affected regions with snowfall totals around 15-25 cm.

Further north around The Pas and Flin Flon, snowfall warnings are also in place, however, the heavier snowfall is expected to start Wednesday afternoon and continue through Wednesday night with 10-15 cm likely falling by the morning.

Environment and Climate Change Canada also issued Special Weather Statements on Tuesday for the rest of southern and central Manitoba as there is the potential for heavy snowfall on Thursday.

While it may feel like April is late for a snowfall event, Winnipeg typically sees around 11 cm of snowfall this month according to climatology statistics from Environment and Climate Change Canada.

This system will clear later on Friday and to start the weekend, Saturday will be sunny but cool around southern Manitoba.
