Clothing and Climate
In early April temperatures may range from -10 to +10 Celsius. They could even be much warmer or colder. In all likelihood there will still be snow on the ground.
The best way to dress for warmth and comfort is to layer. Long underwear would be an asset as would hat, mitts or gloves, waterproof footwear, and rain gear. This is northern Manitoba. Anything can happen with respect to the weather. You might wish you had brought shorts or your down parka.
