WINNIPEG – The far north in Manitoba is getting an early dose of winter as Environment Canada has issued snowfall warnings.

4:20 AM CDT Wednesday 11 October 2017
Snowfall warning in effect for:

  • Tadoule Lake
  • Brochet

Snowfall, with total amounts of 15 to 25 cm is forecast associated with an intensifying low-pressure system over southern Saskatchewan. Snowfall will spread northeastward into Brochet and Tadoule Lake this afternoon as the low tracks northeastward into Manitoba by Friday. There is a risk of freezing rain over southern sections of these regions this afternoon and this evening.

The greatest intensity of snowfall is forecast Thursday night when snowfall amounts should exceed 10 cm in 12 hours.

Snowfall will taper off Friday as this system pushes into the western Hudson Bay where it will bring northerly winds potentially gusting to 100 km/h in Churchill and York.
