Yesterday was painfully cold in southern Manitoba, and today winter conditions are going to be equally unkind.

Saturday saw highs in the –23 C range (about –39 with windchill), with overnight lows of about –27 C (–34 C with windchill) in Winnipeg and the surrounding area.

Things are going to be on the sunnier side Sunday, but the weather isn't going to be any friendlier.

Winnipeg forecast:

  • Mostly sunny; cloudier into evening
  • High of –23 C (–38 C with windchill)
  • Winds gusting to 15 km/h
  • Overnight low of –26 C (–34 C with windchill)

About two centimetres of snow is expected Monday morning in Winnipeg, with north winds in the 30 km/h to 50 km/h range and a high of –18 C (–34 C with windchill) on the way.
