Winter storm watch in effect for:
A very intense low pressure system will track through northern Manitoba Wednesday.
This weather system will spread heavy snow across the Lac Brochet and Tadoule Lake regions tonight and Wednesday. Snowfall totals of 25 to 35 cm are likely for these regions before tapering off late Wednesday. Strong northerly winds will develop in the wake of this low Wednesday and very poor visibilities in blowing snow is expected.
The snow will start early Wednesday in Churchill and end Wednesday night. Very strong northeasterly winds will give poor visibilities in blowing snow and sustained blizzard conditions are possible.
This weather system will also bring unusually strong wind gusts throughout the remainder of Manitoba on Wednesday.
Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
Winter storm watches are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.
