Rain, snow, fog put damper on Manitoba spring

The sun will come out tomorrow.

Well, at least in Winnipeg, anyway. And only for a day.

In the meantime, people in southern Manitoba are still stuck in the rain, snow and fog.

Environment Canada has issued a fog advisory across much of southwestern Manitoba, where near-zero visibility is being reported, including on some highways just outside Winnipeg.

The rain-snow from Thursday tapered off through the night across western Manitoba leaving wet surface conditions in its wake. That, combined with temperatures falling overnight has created widespread fog, according to Environment Canada.

The fog is expected to lift later this morning as the temperatures rise to about 8 C. But that doesn't mean the rain is done.

There is still a 30 per cent chance of showers throughout southwestern Manitoba and a 60 per cent chance in southeastern Manitoba.

Things clear up Saturday in Winnipeg and southeastern areas with sun and temperatures around 10 C.

Then, sigh, another rainy system moves in Sunday and into Monday in Winnipeg.

In Brandon, the clouds and rain will hang around Saturday and don't seem to be going anywhere until Tuesday.

Temperatures across the southern region are expected to stay well below the normal daytime high of 14 C until at least the end of next week.
