Winter's not over yet!

March 18, 2010 — Goodbye heat, hello windchills. Winter is making a brief return to the Prairies.

Hopefully you had a chance to enjoy it, because that summer-like weather parts of the Prairies were seeing earlier this week has been replaced with chilly temperatures and even SNOW in some places.

Yes, Old Man Winter is making a bit of a comeback.

'We have a cold front swinging across the provinces, which is leading to a dip in temperatures,' says Weather Network meteorologist Michelle Cassar. 'That will be the big story. Many cities will be hovering around the freezing mark right through next week.'

And if that's not enough to make you shiver, how about this: some cities will be seeing windchills into the minus twenties overnight tonight. We're also calling for up to 10 centimetres of snow in some central and northern parts of the provinces.

This wintery weather could come as a shock to the system for many, especially since it's following a string of WARM temperatures earlier this week. On Tuesday, Lethbridge climbed all the way to 20 degrees, making it the hot spot of the country.

For more details on what you can expect in the Prairies this weekend, make sure you tune into The Weather Network on TV.
