Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for parts of southern and central Manitoba.

The national forecaster says that snow will begin overnight tonight, bringing 10 to 20 cm by the time it tapers off Tuesday night.

In addition to heavy snowfall, the southern edge of the warning region may receive some freezing rain.

A low pressure system will move into the province tonight, bringing heavy snowfall with it.

A band of heavy snow will bring accumulations of 10 to 20 cm from the Riding Mountains, through the Interlake, to Poplar River on Tuesday. Snow will taper off Tuesday night.

Environment Canada says to prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
