Environment Canada is warning that the southeast of Manitoba "could see significant snowfall" to start the week.

Environment Canada has just released the following:

..A late season snowfall on the way..

The work week will be starting off on a wintery note over southern Manitoba as a storm system takes shape south of the international border. The storm system is expected to develop over the Dakotas Monday and track into northern Minnesota Monday night spreading a large area of precipitation over southern Manitoba.

At this time, it looks like much of the Red River Valley and southeast Manitoba could see significant snowfall from this system, with the potential of 10 cm or more in some areas Monday into Monday night. Precipitation will likely mix with rain or ice pellets closer to the US border towards the Sprague region Monday before changing to snow Monday night. The system is expected to be out of southern Manitoba by Tuesday morning.

Snowfall warnings may be issued later today as more information becomes available on this developing system. The public is advised to monitor updated forecasts and statements and to prepare for a return to winter weather conditions Monday over southern Manitoba.
