US blizzard barrels to Canada


Parts of southern Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec are expected to receive the remnants of a full-scale US storm which is expected to bring blizzards to some states.

On Sunday, The Weather Network reported that the low Colorado storm system that began this week will stretch more than 3,000 kilometers at its peak, reaching parts of the Canadian Prairies and the Gulf of Mexico.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this is a low pressure system that occurs in southeastern Colorado during the winter months, triggering blizzards across the northern and central plains of the United States. United.

Terri Lang, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, said the storm is typical for this time of year and will likely only affect southeastern Saskatchewan and southern Manitoba with snow drifts and winds.

“Southern Manitoba will be more affected, but most of the power with the system is going further south, so I wouldn’t be surprised to get bulletins for southern Manitoba, but that’s just not a system as strong as these, that’s why there haven’t been any bulletins yet,” Lang told CTVNews.ca in a Monday phone interview.

While both provinces are already experiencing snow, this storm will bring more overnight Tuesday through Wednesday according to Lang. She said the snow will likely continue through Wednesday with some winds and some areas will still experience parts of the storm through Thursday.

“The most important thing people should know is that there is more snow and they should be prepared for winter driving conditions. Have their car ready, check the condition of the highway before you leave and if it looks bad, people should postpone their travel plans accordingly because the system kicks in,” she said.

STORM EXPECTED TO MOVE EAST

As the storm moves across the Prairies on Wednesday, Lang said it will likely reach parts of eastern Ontario by the end of the week.

Parts of northwestern and southern Ontario, as well as Quebec, will eventually get snow by Thursday and Friday, Lang said.

“Northwestern Ontario will definitely get more snow than southern Manitoba and southern Ontario will get snow and likely freezing rain,” she said.

Although the eastern provinces may receive a weather report if the snow progresses, Lang said Prairie residents should be well equipped to deal with the expected snow conditions.

“We expect snow, but not a ton. We have this (storm) system every winter, so people should be used to snow in Saskatchewan and Manitoba in December,” he said. she stated.
