As the above image depicts, anywhere between 5-15 cm of snow is likely. However, areas in southern Manitoba will likely experience a rain/snow mix due to temperatures just above the freezing mark. Furthermore, while the wind gusts will not be as dramatic as we had seen in Alberta and Saskatchewan on Wednesday, areas in southwestern Manitoba can still expect gusts up to 80 km/h.
The following is a breakdown of the regional forecasted snowfall accumulations for Manitoba on Thursday:
Brandon: 1-3 cm
Churchill: 2-4 cm
Dauphin: 5-10 cm
Thompson: 10-15 cm
Winnipeg: 5-10 cm
