That large low pressure system that went through the area has produced a new record low barometric pressure of 96.7 kPa
for Winnipeg. The system gave snow to the western areas and heavy rain to southern areas.



AWCN11 CWWG 271825
Summary weather statement issued by Environment Canada at 1:25 PM
CDT Wednesday 27 October 2010.

A historical, record setting monster fall storm is finally starting
to lessen its grip on Southern Manitoba. This will go down as one
Of the most intense systems to ever influence Southern Manitoba.
Winnipeg set an all time record for lowest barometric pressure with
this storm as the pressure dropped to 96.70 kpa Tuesday afternoon.
This shattered the previous lowest pressure recorded in Winnipeg of
97.42 kpa. This storm produced widespread heavy rainfall to most of
Southern Manitoba with some wet snow over western areas of the
province. The higher terrain of the riding and Turtle Mountains
picked up 15 to 30 cm of heavy wet snow with the duck mountains
receiving 10 cm. Lower elevations escaped with snowfall amounts of
less than 5 cm. Precipitation will gradually wind down later this
afternoon as this system slowly weakens and pulls off to the
northeast. Extremely strong northerly winds continue to affect
Southern Manitoba with gusts to 90 km/h reported in the Red River
Valley this afternoon. Winds will gradually diminish later this
evening.

95.5 impressive

The strong winds drove the water for the 3 lakes here from the north to the south creating flooding north of Winnipeg

That said I found nothing special here in Winnipeg as I worked outside both days of the storm
NEED SNOW ,WANT SNOW, COME ON NOW, PLEASE SNOW, I HAVE BEEN A GOOD BOY!!
