Parts of northern Manitoba are still under a snowfall warning as the region experienced major snowfall to start the week.

Gillam, Shamattawa and York are expected to get an additional five to 10 centimetres of snow Tuesday, the Environment Canada warning said.

Flin Flon was hit by 26 centimetres of snow at the front end of the weather system that entered Manitoba from Saskatchewan, while Thompson had 17 centimetres and The Pas had eight centimetres plus some rain. Those communities are not forecast to get further significant accumulations.

Gillam already had 14 centimetres of snowfall as of 6 a.m. but Environment Canada was still predicting another five to 10 centimetres for the community.

The snow is expected to taper off to flurries Tuesday evening as the weather system moves into Hudson Bay.
