Spring storm brings rain and snow

WINNIPEG – After a beautiful weekend that saw most people doing away with the heavy jackets and donning shorts and T-shirts, more winter is on the way for parts of Manitoba, with temperatures that will fall well below seasonal once again.

A late spring weather system is currently tracking across southern Saskatchewan, producing snowfall warnings for central Manitoba (yes, snowfall warnings) with 10-15 centimetres expected through the day tomorrow. Across the south, expect rain tonight with a cold front swinging through, setting us up for a windy day with falling temperatures.

Your morning commute will be a wet one and into the afternoon those showers could change to flurries with the system rolling out by Wednesday afternoon. Unfortunately, Wednesday will also be a cold day, well below seasonal, with the potential to fall below freezing.

It’s definitely not the way we wanted to start the week that will usher in the beginning of May. By week’s end, temperatures will be back in the double digits but struggling to get to our seasonal normal of 16 C.

So, the moral of this weather story is don’t put those warm jackets and gloves away just yet. And while you’re at it, grab an umbrella!
