Southern Manitoba may be basking in the warmth of spring weather, but northern Manitoba is still feeling Mother Nature's icy wrath.

A winter storm watch is in effect for the northern part of the province, with Churchill likely to get the worst of it.

"An intensifying spring storm coming from Alberta is expected to bring heavy snow, freezing rain, and strong winds beginning Saturday night," Environment Canada said Saturday.

"The Churchill regions will likely see the strongest impact with this weather system."

Churchill is expected to see 15-20 cm of snow Sunday, which will then taper off overnight. A strong northeast wind could keep snow blowing, however, and bring poor visibility Monday morning.
