More snow is headed for the City of Winnipeg and much of southern Manitoba Tuesday. Combined with high winds, affected areas are seeing a classic spring storm on the prairies, with heavy, wet snow continuing to fall.
Environment Canada says a low pressure system has stalled over northwestern Ontario, pushing snow west into Manitoba.
The snowfall is expected to slowly diminish late Tuesday, but not before dumping a total of 15-25 cm for the City of Winnipeg. Most regions under the snowfall warnings are expecting similar totals, though some areas in the Parkland and further north may see up to 30 cm.
The storm has caused a number of issues for travellers, with extremely icy conditions on many highways. It's also expected to result in a number of bus cancellations and closures for schools.
Poor visibility will be likely as well for motorists Tuesday morning with winds north at 40 km/h with gusts up to 60 km/h at times. The temperature will reach a high of -1 but wind chill values will be around -10.
Most of the snow should be gone by the weekend as temperatures begin to warm slightly, with a high of 0 on Wednesday and then +4 for both Thursday and Friday. Daytime highs over the weekend are expected to hit +5 and +8 on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
