Justin Shelley, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), says Portage la Prairie can expect a pretty tame work week in terms of weather conditions.

"We're just sort of continuing that warm trend that started Sunday in the region, which will likely last into Friday, maybe into Saturday," says Shelley. "Most of the week should be relatively quiet."

He says during the work week, Portage will hover around its normal temperature range for March. Regarding precipitation, Shelley says ECCC isn't tracking any significant snowfall, with a chance of a few cm Tuesday night into Wednesday. There is a chance of dome light freezing rain as well. However, things will get colder once the weekend comes, and we could see snow mixed with rain as a low works through Manitoba.

"We're expecting 5 to 10 cm, possibly up to 15 cm, but the Portage region is going to remain on the relatively warm side of the system to begin on Friday," he continues. "So, Snowfall accumulation should be more limited in the Portage region, but there is still the potential between Friday night and Saturday night of seeing 2 to 5 cm possible, but the bulk of the precipitation should remain farther north and east of the region."
