It looks like this could be a stormy weekend in southern Manitoba.

Environment Canada is tracking a low-pressure system that is developing along the international border. This system is expected to bring widespread snow into southern Manitoba, beginning Friday night. 

According to Environment Canada, some areas could receive as much as 10 to 20 centimetres of snow by Saturday night. 

It will also be breezy. Winds from the southeast will develop ahead of the disturbance, coinciding with the leading bands of organized snowfall. Environment Canada warns that this will produce areas of blowing snow on Saturday which could result in deteriorating travel conditions.

Right now, forecasters have only moderate confidence in this system as it is still developing and may shift further south, limiting the snowfall amounts and blowing snow potential.

Snowfall warnings are currently in effect for the western half of southern Manitoba, where Environment Canada suggests the 10 to 20 centimetres of snow could fall. 

The eastern half of southern Manitoba, including Steinbach, is only expected to receive five to 10 centimetres of snow on Saturday, with wind gusts of 60 kilometres per hour from the east.
