Models are showing the potential for some localised heavy snowfall through central Manitoba during Friday, with the threat pushing east into northwestern Ontario. The deepening low is progged to produce some heavy precip for northern Ontario into the weekend and become quite stormy for mid May.

As always at this time of year, any snow that falls will likely have a high water content. The NAM model shows the 528dm line through southern Manitoba late Friday.

Snowfall warning for
Selkirk - Gimli - Stonewall - Woodlands - Eriksdale continued

10 to 20 cm of snow expected tonight into Friday.



A low pressure system over southeast Saskatchewan will track across North Dakota tonight and move into northwest Ontario by Friday evening. Rain from this system has spread over western Manitoba tonight and will continue to spread eastward across southern Manitoba overnight.

Over the warning area rain will change to snow tonight and become heavy at times overnight. The change to snow will occur quickest over northern sections of the warning area as well as higher elevations of western Manitoba around the Riding mountains. Snow will continue to spread east across the Interlake area to east of Lake Winnipeg through Friday. At this point snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm are expected over the warning area by Friday evening with up to 20 cm of snow possible over higher elevations of western Manitoba.

EC estimates 20-25 cm fallen through the Gimli area overnight and early this morning. The snow has pushed east into northwestern Ontario. Warnings dropped for the Gimli region, some remain in eastern most Manitoba but this will likely drop soon as the precip exits Manitoba.
