Parts of Manitoba received more than 40 cm of snow today during a spring which has yet to really arrive across the Prairies.

As much as 20 cm of snow fell in neighbouring Saskatchewan yesterday which forced some roads to close down.

Most of the major Prairie cities had big drops in their April average temperatures including:

Regina 6.3°C below normal

Edmonton 4.7°C below normal

Winnipeg 4.5°C below normal

Calgary 3.0°C below normal
