Wind warning issued for Westman, chance of a … thunderstorm?

Environment Canada has issued a wind warning across wide swaths of Westman.

They say that strong westerly winds gusting to 90 km/h are expected later today.

An intense storm developing in northern Saskatchewan will race southeastward across Manitoba today to reach northwestern Ontario by midnight. Heavy snow is expected northeast of the storm's track, with current indications of 10–15 centimetres in the northern Interlake and east of Lake Winnipeg.

Strong westerly winds will move into southwestern Manitoba later today as an upper disturbance associated with the storm tracks southeastward.

The air associated with this upper disturbance is unusually unstable for this time of year. As a result there is a risk of heavy snow squalls and even a thunderstorm over parts of southern Manitoba later today.

Today's high should reach 2ºC, but extremely stiff winds will keep it feeling chilly. In Brandon, the snow should end near noon, but there is a risk of freezing rain if the temperature rises before the snow stops.

More flurries are expected tonight and tomorrow morning. Winds will gradually diminish until the finally die down tomorrow night.
