A Cold Day for a Fire And an Alberta Clipper

By: plapman, 3:17 PM GMT on December 31, 2008

Today will bring increasing cloudiness with a few flurries beginning early this morning and ending late this morning. The winds will be up to 15 km/h (9 mph). A high -17C(1F) with a wind chill of -33 is expected.
Tonight will be cloudy with snow beginning this evening. It is expected that 5 to 10 cm(2.0 to 3.9 in) will accumulate. The winds will be up to 15 km/h (9 mph) with an overnight low of -19C(-2F) and a wind chill of -28.
An Alberta Clipper
5 to 10 cm of snow tonight as an Alberta clipper rips through
Manitoba.

This Alberta clipper - a vigorous and fast moving low pressure system
- will pass through southern Alberta this morning and then
Saskatchewan this afternoon. Snow will push into western Manitoba
this evening as this clipper approaches. The snow will spread
through most of southern Manitoba by new years morning. A quick 5 to
10 cm of fluffy snow is expected. Low visibilities in the falling
snow and local blowing snow will occur in parts of Manitoba tonight
and Thursday morning. However, the great speed of this system, about
60 km/h, means the worst conditions would not last more than a few
hours at most for any given location.

This first system will move into Ontario by noon Thursday but a
second clipper system will track through the northern states late
Friday and into Saturday bringing some more snow to southern
Manitoba.



============================================================
There was a major fire in Portage yesterday at a small apartment block putting 5 to 6 families out of a home.
From Portageonline.com the story is as follows:

Charlton Avenue Home Leveled After Fire ©Portageonline.com







No details have been released on the cause of the fire that claimed a home on Charlton Avenue yesterday, but it's been confirmed two people were taken to hospital with injuries. One was a nearby tenant who suffered from smoke inhalation, the other an occupant who suffered burns and remains at the Portage General Hospital. Four sisters , between 4 and 17 years old, were occupants of the residence where the fire started. They were able to evacuate the building, and seek shelter in a nearby home. In attempts to put the fire out a partial collapse of the roof caused emergency crews to retreat. Later in to the evening heavy machinery was brought in to level the burning building. Emergency crews remained on the scene until around midnight. There's no word yet on total damages. The fire is under investigation by the Office of the Fire commissioner and is believed to be accidental at this time.

I watched "The Bucket List" with the queen of the prairie last night. She says I'm mean because I laughed at her when she cried at the end. Those guys sure knew how to out in style.

Bitter Cold on the Prairie

By: plapman, 2:47 PM GMT on December 14, 2008

Today will be cloudy with periods of light snow beginning this morning. The winds will be northerly at 30 km/h gusting to 50. The temperature will remain steady near -27C(-17F) which combined with the wind resulting in an extreme wind chill of -43.

Wind chill warning for Portage la Prairie - Headingley - Brunkild - Carman continued

Extreme wind chills today through Monday.

This is a warning that extreme wind chill conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.

A ridge of high pressure is building southeastward across the Prairies, with bitterly cold Arctic air associated. Meanwhile, an intense weather system is working its way northeastward across the midwestern United States. Strong north winds of 40 gusting 60 km/h between these two systems are affecting southern Manitoba with the strongest winds from Winnipeg south through the Red River Valley. Extreme wind chills of minus 40 or colder are being experienced across much of southern Manitoba early this morning. Extreme wind chills will continue in most areas for the next couple of days.

Early this morning radar shows snow from North Dakota associated with the midwestern system pushing northeastward into southern Manitoba. Snowfall amounts are expected to be quite light except for areas south and east of Winnipeg where 2 to 4 cm may accumulate. The combination of snow and strong winds is still expected to generate blowing snow and reduced visibilities in the southern Red River Valley throughout the day today, however visibilities are not expected to be poor enough for long enough to classify as a blizzard. While poor highway conditions are still likely in some areas due to blowing and drifting snow, widespread blizzard conditions are unlikely.

Me and Abby didn't go for usual 3 to 4 mile jaunt yesterday. I too ke out on a short round the block excursion so she do her business. It looks like the same is in store today.

Portage la Prairie - Headingley - Brunkild - Carman
4:45 AM CST Saturday 13 December 2008
Winter storm warning for
Portage la Prairie - Headingley - Brunkild - Carman upgraded from winter storm watch
Heavy snow and extreme wind chills today and Sunday.

This is a warning that dangerous winter weather conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions...Listen for updated statements.

An intense weather system moving through the northern states has given blizzard conditions and heavy snow to southern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan during the night. The system will continue moving eastward today spreading snow mainly to areas along and south of the trans-Canada highway.

Northerly winds will strengthen later today over southern Manitoba, reaching 40 gusting 60 km/h in many areas. The hardest hit area is likely to be over the southern Red River Valley where north winds of 50 gusting 70 tonight combined with the snow will give blizzard conditions which will persist into Sunday afternoon. Other regions south of the trans-Canada may have blizzard conditions at times, however visibilities are not expected to be quite as bad as over the southern Red River Valley.

Total snowfall amounts with this system are expected to be from 10 to 15 cm over the Sprague region, 5 to 10 cm in other areas south of the trans-Canada, and lesser amounts elsewhere.

In addition to the snow and strong winds, extreme wind chills in the minus 40 to minus 45 range are expected in many areas tonight and Sunday as temperatures plunge into the minus 25 to minus 30 range combined with the strong winds.

Improving visibilities are expected Sunday afternoon or evening as the system moves away from the area, however bitterly cold Arctic air will continue to affect the Prairies Sunday night and Monday.

Depending on the track of the heavier snow and stronger winds, warning regions may shift slightly throughout the day to take into account changing weather conditions.
