It's coming your way too, Manitoba!
All right Canucks, it may be time to officially get out your winter gear, as some parts of Canada are about to get hit with some rather snowy weather this week.
According to The Weather Network, a "lake-effect snow machine" is about to make its way to parts of Ontario and Manitoba as early as Monday, November 1 and could stretch over 1,500 kilometres in total!
The extent of the lake-effect bands is due to the #Arctic air filling an upper trough, which stretches from Saskatchewan to Quebec, combined with water temperatures in excess of 10\u00b0C in most places. #SKwx #MBwx #ONwx #QCwx— The Weather Network (@The Weather Network) 1635699602
"The extent of the lake-effect bands is due to the Arctic air filling an upper trough, which stretches from Saskatchewan to Quebec, combined with water temperatures in excess of 10°C in most places," TWN said.
Starting Sunday, October 31, winds are forecasted to produce lake-effect squalls into the Winnipeg area and also impact the Trans-Canada Highway from Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, to the Ontario border. The squalls could even hit along Ontario highways 11 and 17, stretching all the way from Lake of the Woods to Lake Superior.
Come Monday, certain areas may even see some lingering snow.
"Most areas will just see a cm or two but the southeastern shores of lakes Winnipeg, Manitoba, Seul, Nipigon and Lake of the Woods could see 5-10 cm locally," said TWN.
Areas east of Muskoka, as well as the Dundalk Highlands in Ontario, will even see that Arctic air head south overnight on Monday, with lake-effect showers turning into snow. Some high winds are also expected in the area, with gusts of 40-60 km/h possible Monday afternoon into the evening.
"This pattern looks to lock in over the Great Lakes for the first week of November, keeping temperatures below seasonal, as well as keeping significant systems at bay," TWN predicts.
It's also forecasted that the first measurable snowfall of the season could happen across higher terrain areas near the Great Lakes by the end of this week so get ready to bundle up!
