Warnings

9:36 AM CDT Wednesday 01 April 2020 Snowfall warning in effect for areas in red


Snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 20 cm is expected. A slow moving cold front tracking across western Manitoba will bring heavy wet snow to the region. Current indications are that 10 to 20 cm will fall with this system, although local amounts could be higher. At this time precipitation near the cold front is likely falling as a rain/snow mix changing to rain east of the front. Areas east of the cold front, in particular the Interlake, Red River valley and southeastern Manitoba, may also be added to the snowfall warning later today as the system moves eastward. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Snowfall warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to MBstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #MBStorm.
