The winter storm watch continues. Snow changing to rain late this morning. Local snowfall expected another 5 cm. Wind northwest 30 km/h gusting to 50. High plus 2. Tonight is not much better.
Rain ending early this evening then changing to snow overnight. Wind northwest 40 km/h gusting to 60. Temperature steady near plus 3.
It sounds like Portage is going to be bearing the brunt of the Trans-Canada highway for a while. News is that the overpass that was closed last Friday is going to have to be rebuilt. Major structural damage must be evident. The overpass is east of town and crosses the CNR mainline.
