Snow in June? Warning issued for northern Manitoba
It's June 5 and there's a chance of 10-20 centimetres of snow falling in northern Manitoba.
Environment Canada has issued a weather warning for the following communities:
- Tadoule Lake
- Leaf Rapids
- Lynn Lake
An intensifying low pressure system over western Manitoba will track northeastward and spread rain initially into northern Manitoba today, Environment Canada states in its alert.
"Generally, 10 to 20 cm of snow can be expected, however with temperatures near the freezing mark, there will be some melting of the falling snow."
Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow, Environment Canada said, adding that freezing rain is possible in the Churchill area Thursday night and into Friday morning.
