Drop in temps, 10-20cm of snowfall expected for Brandon and area

Posted by Adam in Local Weather, 1/6, 4:04 PM

A seasonally mild and dry period of weather in Brandon and area is expected to come to an end this week with a forecast change in weather pattern first bringing a drop in temperatures and then, the following day, a meaningful amount of snowfall. 

Though the temp sits at just -3 as of the time of this posting on late Monday afternoon, the current forecast for Brandon has an expected plummeting overnight to -20 with a -30 “feels like” wind chill temperature by sunrise on Tuesday morning.

That will set the stage for Wednesday’s expected snowfall event, where a map recently published by Environment and Climate Change Canada has Brandon and nearly all of Southwestern Manitoba in an area that could receive an unwelcome combination of 10-20cm of snow alongside 50-60 km/hr wind gusts:

Though no weather watches, warnings or statements are currently in place for Brandon at the time of this posting it would be advisable for those with travel plans on Wednesday and Thursday to monitor ECCC’s Watches and Warnings page for Manitoba at as well as the Manitoba road conditions page
