Snowfall Warnings continue for all of southern Manitoba, with 10-20cm expected by Sunday morning.
Snow began early Saturday morning in western Manitoba and will spread eastward throughout the morning hours.
Significant snowfall, gusting easterly winds, and the likelihood of travel impacts throughout Saturday, into the evening hours, are all on the table for the regions within those warnings.

The highest snowfall totals are expected in Southwestern Manitoba, and then along the International border into the Western Red River Valley. Those regions are the most likely places to see 15+ cm out of this system.
In southeastern Manitoba, potential snowfall totals are expected to be somewhat less, but not much, landing between 10-15cm."
Based on RADAR imagery, it appears snow will fall consistently throughout much of the day but will be peppered with more intense bands of snowfall from time to time.

Easterly winds gusting between 40 and 60km/h are in the forecast, and combined with the falling snow, will produce blowing snow and reduced visibility.
Environment and Climate Change Canada meteorologists are actively tracking this system; please monitor for updated forecasts and/or alerts.
Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
As the system continues to trek eastward, we're expecting the snow to taper off tonight, again west to east, and see the winds subside and shift northerly.
Right now, there is the possibility we could see winds become relatively calm before they pick up again out of the north, leading to more blowing snow, but there is some uncertainty regarding how long that may last overnight and into Sunday morning.
Conditions are expected to improve by afternoon Sunday, as the outer edges of the low exit our forecast area with temperature reaching -6.
