Much of southern Manitoba is now under a snowfall warning. 

Environment Canada is calling for 10 to 20 centimetres of snow across the southern half of the province on Thursday. 

It says the slow-moving disturbance impacting the southeastern prairies will pull another wave of snow into the region on Thursday. Moderate to heavy snow will spread northwards into parts of southern Manitoba early in the morning, then spread eastward across the Red River Valley and southeastern Manitoba through the day.

Local accumulations in excess of 20 centimetres may occur in areas close to the western escarpment of the Red River Valley.

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

Environment Canada urges motorists to be prepared to adjust their driving to changing road conditions. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight. 

Snowy conditions are expected to continue on Friday. Then, Saturday it is back to sunshine, though lows are only expected to hover around the freezing mark. The start of next week should see temperatures start to creep toward double digits again.
