Even though temperatures are hitting a high of 17 degrees in Southern Manitoba on Monday a low-pressure system is moving in in the evening bringing snow and wind.
A special weather statement is in effect for the city of Winnipeg, while winter storm, wind, and snowfall warnings are in effect for most of the rest of Manitoba.
According to Environment Canada "A strong low-pressure system from Saskatchewan will track eastwards across the central Prairies giving strong winds, heavy snow, blowing snow, and patchy freezing rain beginning early today and lasting into Tuesday."
The system is not only bringing with it precipitation, which will turn from rain to snow but also gusting winds.
"Southwestern portions of the province will see strong to severe winds beginning late this afternoon with gusts as high as 90 km/h persisting into the evening before diminishing slightly by Tuesday morning. A wind warning is currently in effect for the Westman area. Further east, into the Red River Valley and Interlake, winds will still be strong, with gusts to 80 km/h likely."
Local snowfall amounts across the south of the province will be in the 2 to 4 cm range. Conditions should steadily improve on Tuesday, March 30.
