WINNIPEG — Residents in parts of northern Manitoba aren’t catching any breaks with this early snowfall.

Environment Canada still has winter storm warnings in place as snow continues to fall.

Substantial amounts fell through the day Wednesday and continued into the night.

The heaviest band falling north of Thompson, Man., and between Lynn Lake and Flin Flon, some early reports have come in with 50 centimetres or more.

Because this low pressure system started with rain and later mixed with snow, numbers have been variable.

Here are the reports from this morning from Environment Canada:

  • Leaf Rapids: 60 cm
  • Pukatawagan: 50 cm
  • South Indian Lake: 35 cm
  • Thompson: 20 cm
  • Snow Lake: 14 cm
  • Split Lake: 13 cm
  • Flin Flon Airport: 7 cm

The snowfall at the airport in Flin Flon is deceiving as higher snowfall was accounted for in the town.

Snow will continue Thursday into the evening before it begins to taper off overnight. These areas could see anywhere between five and 20 cm of additional snow.

Conditions on roads are deteriorating, and local RCMP took to twitter to put out a warning.
