WINNIPEG - Environment Canada has issued the following special weather statement for much of southeast Manitoba including Winnipeg:
A mix of rain and snow is on tap for the Red River Valley eastward to the Ontario border.
A low pressure system is forecast to move into southern Manitoba today, bringing rain and snow with it. As the system moves eastward, precipitation will begin as rain but will change over to snow from west to east. It now appears that the changeover to snow will occur this evening. The precipitation is forecast to exit the region by midnight, so most of the precipitation should fall as rain.
Current indications are that areas near and east of Winnipeg will receive 5 to 10 mm of rain and a few cm of snow, while points west of the city will receive lesser amounts of both.
