Fog cloaks first day of spring in southern Manitoba
The first day of spring started off shrouded in fog warnings across most of southern Manitoba.
The fog was the result of warm daytime temperatures that melted snow combined with night time cooling, the weather agency said.
Visibility in many areas was reduced to 400 metres through the morning, and Winnipeg's skyline was almost indiscernible in the low-lying cloud.
It was finally lifted just after 11 a.m.
Temperatures will rise again Thursday to above freezing, leaving a sloppy, melting mess as spring tries to nudge winter out like an unwanted house guest.
CBC meteorologist John Sauder is calling for daytime highs of –12 C to –8 C from Friday through to Tuesday. The lows are expected to range from –21 C to –16 C.
More snow is also expected to start Thursday evening and fall overnight into Friday morning. It should clear up by afternoon but the forecast calls for more snow again on Monday.
Normal temperatures for this time of year are a high of 1 C and overnight low of –9 C.
