A Blowing Snow Advisory was issued this morning and remains in effect as fresh snow and the strong north wind is causing reduced visibility.
Environment and Climate Change Canada advises that visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero, and suggests we consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
There might be some improvement on Saturday morning with the wind becoming light, but then getting stronger for the afternoon.
Manitoba Highways reports partly ice-covered sections on roads throughout the Southeast.
