Weather notification from Environment and Climate Change Canada

Posted: December 27, 2019

Highlights

  • Colorado low to affect southeastern Manitoba including the Red River Valley starting on Sunday December 29 and continuing into Monday December 30, 2019.
  • Widespread snow accumulations starting at 5 cm going up to 20 cm in the far southeastern corner of the province.
  • Winds are expected to be at 30 km/h with gusts up to 50 km/h giving local blowing snow.

Impacts

  • Travel may be impacted due to road conditions and reduced visibility in snow and blowing snow.

Weather Event Details

A Colorado low is expected to form late tonight (December 27, 2019) or early tomorrow and transit across towards the Great Lakes to affect southern Manitoba on Sunday into Monday.

The latest model runs point to the worst conditions occurring over the very southeastern corner of the province, where snow accumulations could be as high as 20 cm and wind gusts as strong as 50 km/h.  The snow itself and it being blown around as it falls, especially in wide open areas, will lead to poor road conditions and poor visibility.

Conditions should improve on Monday December 30, 2019.

 

Certainty

  • MODERATE: Heavy Snow. There is increasing confidence that the heavier snow will be confined to the very southeastern corner of Manitoba
  • MODERATE: Blowing Snow. The winds are expected to be strong enough to cause local blowing snow, reducing visibility especially in wide open areas.
