Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for all of Southern Manitoba including the City of Winnipeg.
According to the national weather forecaster, a Colorado Low is developing that may trigger the first major winter storm of the season. It is expected that the potent storm will spread heavy snow into Manitoba over the next few days.
Although we may see small accumulations Friday night into Saturday of up to 4 cm the main event is expected to develop Sunday into Monday bringing with it 15 to 30 cm of the white stuff.
The strong Colorado Low is forecast to begin spreading snow northwards into southern Manitoba by Sunday evening, rapidly intensifying as the night progresses. This heavy snow is forecast to continue through Monday, then begin to gradually diminish on Monday night into Tuesday. Snowfall totals are forecast to be significant.
Travel on highways will likely be impacted as winds of 30 to 40 km/h will whip up the snow and greatly reduce visibilities.
