An area of low pressure is expected to deliver a dose of winter to southern Saskatchewan, southern Manitoba, and northwestern Ontario on Wednesday and Thursday.


Snow will move into southern Saskatchewan tonight. About 5 to 10 cm of snow is anticipated. The snow will taper off by Thursday morning.


Across southern Manitoba, snow is expected to begin on Wednesday. The snow will gradually become heavier. Snowfall amounts will range from 25 cm to as much as 50 cm over higher terrain.


Both snow and rain are expected in northwestern Ontario. On Wednesday snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm is expected with locally higher amounts around the border with Manitoba.


Then on Thursday, another 5 to 10 cm is expected for the Manitoba border northeast to the James Bay area and 15 to 30 cm is possible from Pikangikum and Kenora east to Okogi.


On Thursday rain will also be an issue with 30 to 40 mm expected along the north shore of Lake Superior.
