Colorado Low to impact Southern Manitoba and Southeastern Saskatchewan

Southern Manitoba and southeastern Saskatchewan will be impacted by a Colorado low beginning this evening.

Periods of snow will begin this evening in southeastern Saskatchewan and southwestern Manitoba. Snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are possible.

For the Red River Valley and southeastern Manitoba, precipitation will start as rain this evening. The rain-snow line is expected to move eastward on Thursday afternoon which is when rain will begin to switch to snow. Snow will continue until Friday morning. With the transition of rain to snow and the recent mild temperatures, roads and sidewalks will become slippery. There will also be a risk of freezing rain in the vicinity of this rain-snow line.

Rainfall totals of around 5 to 15 mm and snowfall totals of 5 to 10 cm are expected for the Red River Valley and points eastwards, with the higher rainfall amounts expected near the Ontario border as rain takes longer to transition to snow.
