Environment Canada said Wednesday’s snowfall broke records in Winnipeg.

Southwestern Manitoba was welcomed with an early blanket of snow.

Winnipeg saw 4 cm of snow, while Brandon topped out at 8 cm.

Over in Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba Hydro reported power outages.

The snow isn’t leaving just yet, as Environment Canada said to expect to see a light snow fall Thursday night.

Things will continue on Friday with a rain-snow mix, but Environment Canada said they don’t expect it to stick around.
