Keep your shovels handy. Several areas of southern Manitoba are under snowfall warnings today, we could see as much as 10 to 20 cm's by tomorrow.
It's the second dump of snow in about a week, and Chris St. Clair of the Weather Network says it's due to cold air in the Rocky Mountains shifting the storm track into Montana and Colorado. It is causing low pressure waves to form, then move quickly east toward us, fed by moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific.
St. Clair believes we'll see a lot of snow this winter, and if that happens, we have to look ahead to spring, and potential flood problems. He describes most of southern Manitoba as being the bull's eye of the storm patterns, which could occur every week or so.
