More Snow Is Headed For The Prairies This Week & There Could Be Enough To Build A Snowman

The Prairies ended the holiday weekend with snow and rain in some areas, and it looks like they should brace for even more of it this week.

According to The Weather Network (TWN), "a developing Colorado low threatens more early season snowfall, though accumulations will be very temperature dependent."

It's forecast to be mainly rainy in Manitoba on Wednesday, with the province seeing up to 50 millimetres of precipitation across the south.

The white stuff could be an issue in Saskatchewan late on Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning.

"Forecast models vary drastically at this point in time in regards to exact snowfall accumulations," said Jessie Uppal, a meteorologist at TWN. "We have some models that are spitting out nearly no snowfall, whereas other guidance is hinting at significant amounts up to 30+ cm."

However, snowfalls this early isn't totally uncommon for the area, and some Saskatchewanians even posted photos over Thanksgiving weekend.

TWN does note though that the forecast weather may still catch some off guard.

"During what we call the shoulder season like fall, we have more moisture to work with and less drier, arctic air to fight against -- which can lead to major snowstorms," Uppal noted.

Brace yourselves! There's a new Canada winter forecast and it looks like most of the country is in for a pretty frigid, snowy season.

According to AccuWeather's new forecast for the season, frosty conditions are expected to make a big return from B.C. all the way to Quebec because of weather phenomenon La Niña but Atlantic Canada could be spared from the worst of it.

A slew of wet and windy weather is continuing to make its way across some of Canada's Atlantic provinces this Thanksgiving weekend, with Newfoundland getting hit particularly hard.

The Thanksgiving weekend has gotten off to a blustery start in parts of the province, with The Weather Network (TWN) confirming wind gusts reached higher than 100 km/h in the region on Saturday, October 10.

It might be the Thanksgiving long weekend but that isn't stopping the weather from turning wintery in B.C. and Alberta, with snow and freezing temperatures on the way.

The Weather Network has forecast that a "drastic" pattern shift will cause temperatures to plummet on Sunday, even dropping below the freezing mark overnight, which will combine with a system to bring the first snowflakes of the season to many parts of the region.

Those living in Atlantic Canada may want to brace themselves for some wet and windy weather this Thanksgiving weekend.

On Thursday, October 7, The Weather Network (TWN) said that "two powerful systems are gearing up to battle it out over the East Coast," and apparently Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula is expected to get caught right in the middle of the fight.
