Winter storm watch in effect for areas in yellow:
First winter storm of the season for southern Manitoba, with the heaviest snow expected in the Parklands... One last day of pleasant weather is on tap before an approaching winter storm brings an abrupt return to reality later this week. Sunny skies and mild temperatures today will give way to increasing clouds tonight and then snow on Wednesday. While milder temperatures should limit accumulations during the day, colder air wrapping into the system Wednesday night will result in heavy snow, and this heavy snow is expected to continue through Thursday. Widespread snowfall accumulations of 25 cm can be expected by Friday morning, with up to 50 cm over higher terrain. Avoid travel if possible. If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone.
