Despite a worrysome forecast most of the day, residents of much of southwestern Manitoba can release their breaths — a spring storm that threatened more than 10 cm of snow will blow by Friday evening with much less gusto.

Environment Canada says that the heaviest snowfall will hit further north than originally expected, so residents of the Dauphin area shouldn't put away their shovels just yet.

Brandon and more southerly regions will get away with just an inch or so of slushy snow overnight, and rain tomorrow could wash some of that away.

 

About 2–4 cm of snow is expected Friday night, with fairly mild temperatures that will bottom out at -2ºC.

Another 2–4 cm could fall Saturday morning, but it will be mixed with rain, and the precipitation will end around noon, with skies clearing in the evening.

The Sunday-morning low will dip to -13ºC with an afternoon high of -3ºC, with similarly frosty forecasts expected until at least mid-week next week.

 

The normal high for this time of year is 9ºC, the normal low is -3ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1968, when it reached 24.4ºC. The coldest ever was in 1962, when it dropped to -13.9ºC.
