A weather system forming in North Dakota will leave its mark on parts of southern Manitoba as well, with large amounts of snow in some places.

Environment Canada first put out a special weather statement for Much of southern Manitoba on Sunday morning. That weather statement has now been upgraded to a snowfall warning for virtually all of south-eastern Manitoba.

CHVN's weather expert, CMOS accredited weathercaster Chris Sumner, tells us that "15 to 20 centimeters of snow is possible for these areas."

That includes Steinbach, St. Adolphe, Vita, Emerson, Lac Du Bonnet, and the Whiteshell.

Winnipeg will see snow today, but get off easy in comparison. Sumner says the city can expect 5 to 10 centimeters, "and the good thing is we're not expecting strong, gusty winds . . . visibility may or may not be a concern depending on if you're in an open area, there may be a bit of blowing snow. But nothing like some of the conditions we saw back in December and January where it was just a howling blizzard.

"This will be more like one of those traditional spring snowfalls, where you get that heavy, wet snow, and then a little bit of wind."

The areas marked below continue to be under advisory and warnings. Areas in grey are under the special weather statement, while areas in red are under a snowfall warning, and will see significantly more snow.
