Light snow is falling across many Prairie locations this afternoon. EC suggesting upward of a foot of snow possible for higher terrain of Manitoba Friday night...

Looks like remaining cool for the next 5 to 7 days, with further light snow possible.

Snowfall warning for
Poplar River continued

Up to an additional 10 cm of wet snow tonight.

As of 3 PM snowsqualls continue over Lake Winnipeg. These squalls will bring intermittent heavy snow to communities along the eastern shore of Lake Winnipeg throughout the night. Snowfall accumulations will be highly variable..But by Friday morning areas under the heaviest bands of snow can expect another 10 cm of so of wet snow tonight. The snowsqualls should end early Friday morning.

Meanwhile a low pressure system currently in Western Saskatchewan is expected to track into Western Manitoba on Friday. This system will bring snow to the Parkland area of Western Manitoba on Friday. At first the snow will melt on contact with the relatively warmer ground...However cooling temperatures Friday evening should result in snowfall accumulations of 20 to 35 cm by Saturday morning...Especially over higher terrain.

A winter storm watch is an alert of the potential development of severe winter weather. Persons in or near these areas should be prepared for developing adverse weather conditions and should listen for updated watches and possible warnings.

Special weather statement for Manitoba

AWCN11 CWWG 102234
Summary weather statement issued by Environment Canada at 5:34 PM CDT
Saturday 10 October 2009.

..A winterlike weekend..

In the wake of yesterday's low pressure system that brought 10 to
20 cm of snow through the Riding Mountain and Dauphin areas through
the Central Interlake, a northwest flow of unseasonably cold air
produced bands of lake effect snow off Lake Manitoba and Lake
Winnipeg last night into this morning producing locally heavy snow.

Last evening a snowsquall off Lake Manitoba brought a band of heavy
snow along the highway 6 corridor into Winnipeg with about 10 cm of
snow reported in the city between 6 PM and midnight. Radar indicates
higher amounts of 15-20 cm may have fallen northwest of Winnipeg.

Snowsqualls also developed off Lake Winnipeg overnight and continued
into today bringing some very heavy snow southeast of the lake.
The heaviest band extended from Pine Falls through Great Falls
To Pointe du Bois where up to 40 cm of snow was reported within this
snow band in Poplar Bay on the east end of Lac Du Bonnet. This
snowsquall extended all the way into Northwest Ontario and even
produced 15 cm of snow as far as Kenora.

Some recent snowfall reports..

Poplar Bay.............40 cm (east end of Lac Du Bonnet)
Fisher Branch..........30 cm
Arborg.................15 cm
Winnipeg...............10 cm
Pinawa.................10 cm (EST)

Generally cloudy skies with scattered flurries will continue for the
remainder of the holiday weekend over Southern Manitoba with locally
heavier flurries at times southeast of the Manitoba lakes.
