Westman hit with one-two-three punch of snow

A special weather statement issued this morning by Environment Canada warns of significant snowfall headed towards parts of Westman today.

The hardest-hit areas will be further east, in the Interlake and Whiteshell regions, but meteorologists say that the areas of Roblin, Russell, Dauphin, Riding Mountain National Park, Minnedosa and Neepawa should be on the lookout for substantial snow again today.

A series of disturbances affecting southern Manitoba are producing three separate areas of snow, Environment Canada says. The first moved through yesterday afternoon and evening producing around 5 cm of snow near the Trans-Canada Highway with 5–10 cm just north of the Trans-Canada. The second area of snow moved in overnight and this morning is headed east through the province. It followed a nearly identical path as the first one, producing similar amounts.

The third area of snow is expected to move through late this afternoon and this evening giving up to 5 more centimetres of snow.

Officially, snowfall warnings are issued when 10 cm or more of snow is expected in less than 12 hours. While that's a little more than predicted now, three separate areas of snow in about 30 hours time will nonetheless result in significant accumulation, Environment Canada says. A total of up to 15 cm is predicted near the Trans-Canada and slightly higher amounts further east.
