Southern Manitoba warming to –1 C or warmer Saturday
5 to 10 cm of snow expected in The Pas, north Interlake; highs in 3 C range in southwest
More mild weather is on the way Saturday in southern Manitoba, but depending on where you are, snowfall and cold winds could make for more chilly conditions.
The mercury is expected to flirt with the 0 C mark or higher in some parts of the south, CBC Manitoba meteorologist John Sauder says.
"This is the day I said would get really mild," Sauder says. "The southwest corner of the province could be up around 3 C or 4 C today."
The Red River valley should see temperatures in the –1 C to 0 C range. Between five and 10 centimetres of snow is expected to fall in The Pas, the north end of the Interlake, Berens River and the surrounding areas in central Manitoba, Sauder adds.
