Winter weary Southern Manitobans will be dealing with their second Alberta clipper in two days, and the return of Blizzard conditions for a second consecutive day, as the latest low-pressure system to dive out of Northern Alberta swings through the province Saturday. Blizzard Warnings are in effect for most of the region including the Steinbach, Morris, Emerson, Vita, and Winnipeg areas.

Those southerlies will start us on a wild ride of temperature swings over the next 24 to 36 hours, going from -25 to -30 Saturday morning to -3 to +3 Saturday afternoon and holding relatively warm overnight, and then plunging Sunday as a cold front moves through, and temperatures sink throughout the day to the -19 to -22 range.
Winds will ease Saturday evening, just as another area of snow moves into the region. Snow will continue through much of Saturday night as it slowly moves southward out of the province.
