“That rain/snow line is going to be kind of like just east of Virden and then it’s going to move east throughout the night and on Sunday, almost all southern Manitoba is going to be experiencing some accumulating snow,” he said.

An additional 10 to 15 centimetres of snowfall is expected to pepper the province on Sunday.
