WINNIPEG — First it was the extreme cold, and now snow is on the way for southern Manitoba.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Winnipeg and surrounding areas as a weather system moves into the region today.

The weather office says Winnipeg can expect to see snowfall totals between 10-15 centimetres by Monday morning. The precipitation will pick up in the city later Sunday evening and continue throughout the night.

“The snow will end west to east early Monday as this weather system moves through the Great Lakes,” the warning says.

Some blowing snow is also possible as north winds of 30 gusting 50 km/h are expected.

Southwestern Manitoba appears to be receiving the brunt of the system, with snowfall amounts of up to 20 centimetres expected.

Sunday’s high is -19°C, with temps dropping slightly on Monday to -22°C.
