September snowfall records are in jeopardy and this significant storm is threatening to dump 60+ centimetres of snow on parts of the Prairies. This storm will begin on Friday and will linger into Monday morning.

"It's time to change your travel plans across Alberta and Saskatchewan," warns Weather Network meteorologist Tyler Hamilton.


An upper-level low pressure system over the northern Prairies has been strengthening as it moved toward Hudson Bay for the past few days. Now that it's arrived over northern Manitoba, a block in the jet stream has left it with nowhere to go. That brief block will leave the upper low spinning in place into the weekend, pumping cold air down from the Arctic into next week as well.

That means most places are in for a 20-degree temperature drop from the start of the work week to the end, making the region primed for some significant autumn snow.

WINTER STORM WATCHES IN EFFECT
Environment Canada has issued winter storm watches for parts of extreme southwestern Alberta, ahead of what is expected to be a long-duration snowfall event lasting from late Friday to early Monday morning, with hefty amounts along an area stretching from Alberta's southwest through to southern Saskatchewan.

"This may be the most snow you see through the fall, and even the winter months through this season ahead," says Hamilton.

A first, early blast of windy, winter-like weather has knocked out power and made travel nearly impossible in many parts of southern Manitoba.

Heavy, wet snow started Thursday and is expected to last into the Thanksgiving weekend, making driving a sloppy, slippery mess.

RCMP have closed the Trans Canada Highway from Portage la Prairie to Brandon because of poor conditions and several other highways southwest of Winnipeg have also shut down.

In the capital, Winnipeg police report power lines down and numerous traffic lights out.

Environment Canada has issued winter storm warnings across the entire southern part of the province, advising that as much as 50 centimetres of snow could fall in some areas.

Winds are also an issue with gusts expected to reach 80 km/h and as high as 100 km/h off area lakes.

"Travelling will become difficult if not impossible as the day wears on, with heavy, accumulating snow, strong winds and temperatures near zero resulting in treacherous conditions," the weather warning reads.

"The combination of heavy, wet snow and strong winds will likely result in downed trees and power lines."
