Warnings
Steinbach - St. Adolphe - Dominion City - Vita - Richer
3:22 PM CDT Wednesday 03 October 2012
Winter storm warning for
Steinbach - St. Adolphe - Dominion City - Vita - Richer issued

Powerful early season winter storm to affect Southeast Manitoba on Thursday.

This is a warning that dangerous winter weather conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions...Listen for updated statements.

A developing storm system in the Dakotas is forecast to spread into Southern Manitoba tonight, bringing significant amounts of rain to Southeast Manitoba. Some areas could see 20-30 mm or so of rain by Thursday morning. As the night progresses, gusty northerly winds will usher in colder air from the north. With temperatures dropping to the low single digits, the rain will become mixed with snow as the morning approaches.

The storm will intensify significantly throughout the day on Thursday. The heaviest band of precipitation is expected to fall mainly as snow through Southeast Manitoba, where snowfall amounts of anywhere from 10 to 30 cm are expected by the end of the day. Northerly winds gusting to 70 km/h combined with heavy snow will produce whiteout conditions at times. Travel in this area will become increasingly difficult as the day progresses.

The remainder of Southern Manitoba will see a rain/snow mix throughout the day as the temperature hovers in the low single digits. Some areas may see a couple of cm of so of snow accumulation while in others the precipitation will fall mainly as rain. Higher snowfall amounts are also likely along the higher terrain of Western Manitoba.

The heaviest snow will taper off Thursday evening, but a few lingering flurries will likely persist into Friday.

This winter storm will produce poor travelling conditions.

Grey County is forecasted for rain with a high of 9-10 over the weekend. Not quite. I have no doubt in my mind that DKS will give us plenty of advanced warning when Owen Sound is due for [explicit removed].

Going to be 20 there tomorrow. Going to be 22 here.

No snow in the long range, but lots of snow for the North West Angle and Lake of the Woods.

Oh my bad, I thought this topic referred to DKS shaking his head and dandruff flakes falling to the ground. Well he has side burns at least.

We are going to the cottage this weekend to put things away, etc, and the forecast did list flurries as a possibility, then it switched to just rain. And more rain. Then some showers followed by rain. All while cold. The cold I do not mind, I love having a fire going in the cottage and we have the blowers to spread the heat around.

Just sit back, enjoy a good cup of freshly roasted coffee and a great book. Or a little snuggling. Rough life...

It's something that people in hot climates could never, ever appreciate.

I can't believe how just perfectly awesome it is today though...really going to miss this weather. But my kids love the cold, so at least they won't be bitchin' that it's too hot outside.

I've never experienced too warm ever in NE Ontario. Gotta travel up there this weekend, traffic, freezing temperatures and in-laws....sorry I can't find much to be thankful for there...

Last year Thanksgiving dinner was outside. I'm going to miss that (even though it will be too cold in Southern Ontario this year).

This is a depressing thread. I'm ok with a light snowfall on Dec 24, then the white stuff can go away. Last year was a decent winter, I would like to order more of them in the future like it.

Ok...the in-laws can be ok...sometimes...

Had to call up one of our suppliers in Winnipeg today and spoke with someone I've known for a while. We had a rather amusing conversation about it snowing like crazy in Winnipeg and him wearing a winter parka and scarf to work and it being 25 here in Fort Erie and me wearing shorts and a T-shirt to work again.

That's autumn for ya.
