Poor visibility in snow and blowing snow is expected or occurring in some locations.

Blizzard conditions have developed this morning from Lake Manitoba through Elie, Morris, and Emerson with poor visibilities of 400 metres or less due to snow and blowing snow.

Elsewhere winds are not quite as strong, and while visibilities are still quite poor, they are not expected to reach the blizzard threshold.

Within the City of Winnipeg conditions are not that bad, however the blowing snow advisory is in effect for outlying areas.

Improvement should begin by early this evening.

Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #MBStorm.
