WEATHER ADVISORY ISSUED FOR MANITOU:
Unseasonably cold temperatures last night from the north-west brought snowfall accumulations of four to six centimetres throughout the city. The cold temperatures are expected to continue for several days. Residents are advised to dress in winter attire this week as temperatures will remain below plus five Celcius and drop down at night to minus ten Celcius. Temperatures are expected to recover to season norms of twelve degrees by Saturday.
"We were monitoring a large cold front over the GCG Ocean and the hurricane to our south-east. The two fronts created a void between and drew the cold over our city" said Stormy Waters of Lloydminster Abbey Weather Centre. "Such a generous snowfall was not expected in our region until November but it would appear Mother Nature had other plans again".
"The city was prepared for snowfall and this recent event had little impact on city services" said Winter Silversmith of Manitou Tourism. "It appears we completed the structural work on the Midland Park Solarium just in time. Residents are welcome to use the exclusive park for their gatherings, events, or just to escape the cold". The Midland Park Solarium is located 2 Teasag Trail north of the Paulstone Quarry Park and north-east of Downtown Manitou. "It is nice and warm in here by the fire" Winter said. The park maintains a fairly constant twenty-three degrees Celcius year round thanks to solar and forced air and cooling systems. "It is a dry heat so very little humidity to bother users" said Bill D'Rite of Manitou Public Utilities.
