A weather system currently located south of Minnesota has spread snow across Southern Manitoba. This system is forecast to intensify as it tracks over the Great Lakes during the next couple of days. South-Central and Southeastern Manitoba will be on the western edge of this system and receive the worst conditions.

This weather system will bring near 10 cm of snow today over the above regions followed by 5 to 10 cm of snow tonight into Thursday morning. This storm will persist for at least 24 hours and total snowfall amounts expected to reach the 15 to 25 cm range. Gradually strengthening north winds today and tonight will result in blowing snow and reduced visibilities.

Conditions will gradually improve later on Thursday as the system moves away but with either steady or dropping temperatures.
