Weather Talk: Real winter has begun in most areas north of us

Snow fell across much of southern Manitoba and southwestern Ontario on Sunday. Around 1 to 3 inches accumulated in most areas. North of Winnipeg, this snow fell onto older snow, creating even greater depth of snow. This snowpack gets progressively deeper farther north.

Temperatures have gone subzero from northern Manitoba across the Northwest Territories to the Yukon and Alaska.

In other words, real winter has begun over most areas not too far north of here. Meanwhile, the randomness that is weather has produced snow west, south and east of the Fargo-Moorhead area but not right around here. The snow to our south has melted.

But at this point, with so much cold air poised just to our north, any significant snowfall here would be likely to linger through the winter. It probably will happen soon.
