This evening the city of Winnipeg will be seeing some more precipitation in the form of rain before it turns to snow overnight with a Colorado Low moving in for a few days. 

"In the Red River Valley, including Winnipeg, it looks like we'll be getting some accumulating wet snow," says Stephen Berg, Meteorologist with Environment Canada. "We're not entirely sure how much we'll get since it's going to be wet and temperatures will be near zero."

Right now models show the city of Winnipeg will get about 5 cm of snow by late Wednesday afternoon. 

"A winter storm watch is in effect for southwestern Manitoba including Portage la Prairie and Morden. The Parklands area toward Brandon and Riding Mountain National Park will see higher amounts."

Some of the snow will most likely melt on contact as the ground has started to warm up, according to Berg. 

"This is the northern edge of a system moving up from Colorado. It looks like it'll last until Friday but temperatures will stay steady around zero degrees."

Along with the wet snow will be winds gusting between 40 and 60 km/hour on Wednesday afternoon which could affect visibility on highways.
