BLOWING SNOW ADVISORY


Poor visibility in snow and blowing snow is expected or occurring in some locations. Maximum wind gusts: 70 to 80 km/h Locations: Southern portions of the Manitoba Interlake and through the Red River Valley Time span: Beginning Monday night through Tuesday afternoon Remarks: Strong northerly winds have developed over southern Manitoba in the wake of the departing Alberta Clipper system. These winds will combine with the fresh snow to produce widespread blowing snow. The worst conditions will likely occur on Tuesday morning. This advisory may be upgraded to a blizzard warning for parts of the Red River Valley if conditions deteriorate more aggressively than expected. With this blast of winter weather that has impacted the region, it is recommended that anyone who must travel on regional highways checks the road conditions before they depart and carry an emergency kit in their vehicle: - Manitoba highway conditions: https://www.manitoba511.ca/ - Emergency car kits: - English: https://www.getprepared.gc.ca/cnt/kts/cr-kt-en.aspx - Français: https://www.getprepared.gc.ca/cnt/kts/cr-kt-fr.aspx Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. If outside, dress warmly in layers and stay dry. Cover as much exposed skin as possible to avoid frostbite. Blowing snow advisories are issued when winds are expected to create blowing snow giving poor visibility to 800 metres or less for at least 3 hours. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to MBstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #MBStorm.
