Winter Storm Watch

Issued at 16:01 Sunday 04 December 2016

A major winter storm with significant snow and blowing snow is likely for southeastern Manitoba beginning Monday evening lasting through mid-week.

A low pressure system moving eastward along the international border in Saskatchewan will rapidly intensify as it tracks into Manitoba Monday. Snow, heavy at times, will begin Monday evening and continue through Wednesday over the watched area. More uncertainty remains in the final track of this system through southeastern Manitoba, but in general total amounts of 15 to 30 cm are possible through Wednesday. Meanwhile, northerly winds gusting to 60 or 70 km/h will develop early Tuesday over the Interlake and Red River Valley areas. Visibilities are likely to be significantly reduced in snow and blowing snow at times for much of Tuesday and into Wednesday as well. There is potential for sustained blizzard conditions.

The snow and wind will gradually ease Wednesday night. Bitterly cold arctic air sweeps in behind this system, with lows below -20 degrees Celsius expected by the end of the week accompanied by wind chill values in the -30 to -35 range.

###

Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.

Winter storm watches are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.storm.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports to #MBStorm.
