Snowfall amounts for Manitoba

Heavy snow and blizzards dumped more than a foot in some areas. Several highways were closed.

Weather summary for Manitoba issued by Environment Canada at 1:09 p.m. CST Wednesday 7 December 2016.

 

Winter has officially arrived in southern Manitoba as an intense low pressure system to the southeast of the province has brought heavy snow and blizzard conditions to much of the region. Snow and blowing snow are expected to continue today before the system pulls off into northern Ontario.

Normal to below normal temperatures are expected later this week as cold Arctic air works its way into the province.
