Conditions will worsen throughout the day with light flurries for this morning into this evening. There is a warning for FREEZING RAIN today but I don’t think it will get warm enough for us to get it. Our winds will be low to moderate and high of -4C for today. Currently we have mostly cloudy sky’s, a temperature of -13C feels like -17C with our windchill, our winds are from the NE at 6 km/h and will increase to 15 km/h throughout the day.
There is a SPEACIAL WEATHER STATEMENT and a MARINE WIND WARNING for the LAKE TODAY.
Currently the highways are in good driving condition but will be reduced throughout the day.
HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY!
4:37 AM CST Thursday 23 November 2017
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Grand Rapids and Easterville
- Waterhen Meadow Portage and Skownan
Freezing rain will be possible beginning Thursday afternoon through Friday morning across portions of eastern Saskatchewan and southern Manitoba. A low pressure system is forecast to move through the region, spreading a narrow band of freezing rain along its track.
The highest risk areas are forecast to be through the Humboldt and Hudson Bay regions in Saskatchewan, then moving into Manitoba and spreading east-southeast through Swan River, the central and northern Interlake, and then east of Lake Winnipeg.
current analysis indicates that the freezing rain will be relatively light and patchy in nature, however, some regions may see prolonged periods of it resulting in some ice accumulation. Confidence in the regions affected by the freezing rain is low, and further information will be included in future forecasts and/or warnings.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to email@example.com or tweet reports using #MBStorm.

. Otherwise known as the Belt of Orion
, these three blue supergiant stars are hotter and much more massive than the Sun. They lie from 800 to 1,500 light-years away
, born of Orion’s well-studied interstellar clouds. In fact, clouds of gas and dust adrift in this region have some surprisingly familiar shapes, including the dark Horsehead
Nebula and Flame Nebula

Nebula itself is off the right edge of this colorful starfield. This well-framed, 2-panel telescopic mosaic spans about 4 degrees on the sky
