Special Weather for City of Winnipeg from Environment Canada

Special Weather Statement

City of Winnipeg

Issued at 15:30 Monday 21 December 2015
Another round of snow moving in Tuesday.. A storm system over Washington state this afternoon is forecast to track east into North Dakota Tuesday spreading another round of accumulating snow over southern Manitoba. Snow is expected to start Tuesday afternoon near the US border and spread northeast across the Red River valley and southeast Manitoba through the afternoon into Tuesdayevening. Snow may be heavy at times which will produce poor travelling conditions through the evening rush hour before snow tapers off by Wednesday morning. At this point, it appears that general snowfall amounts of 5-10 cm are likely across the Red River valley and southeast Manitoba through Tuesdaynight with 10-15 cm possible in some areas, especially closer to the US and Ontario borders. There is still some uncertainty with the exact track and strength of this system which will influence final snowfall amounts. The public is advised to monitor future forecasts as warnings may be required as the track and strength of this system becomes clearer. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #MBStorm. Find out more ›
