Environment Canada weather warning:

A Colorado low will move toward southern Manitoba today. An area of heavy rain with embedded thunderstorms will arrive this evening and continue throughout Sunday. 50 to 70 mm of rain is expected over southern Manitoba with possibly higher amounts in thunderstorms. The rain will begin to change to freezing rain, then ice pellets and then to snow over southwestern Manitoba and the southern lake basins Sunday morning. 10 to 15 cm of snow is expected in an arcing line extending from Melita – Brandon – Neepawa – Arborg – Berens River by early Monday morning. Strong north winds of 60 km/h gusting to 80 km/h are also expected on Sunday which may cause locally reduced visibilities when combined with the falling snow. Rain will change to wet snow Sunday evening over the Red River Valley and areas east. Conditions will begin to improve by late Monday morning.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio. To report severe weather, send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #MBStorm.
