Environment Canada has issued a blowing snow advisory for the City of Winnipeg, as well as the Central Plains, Interlake, and Pembina Valley.

Environment Canada says they expect visibility to be reduced to zero at times due to blowing snow.

Visibilities are expected to be frequently less than 1 km and locally near zero until early to mid-evening after which time conditions should begin to improve.

Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for taillights ahead and be prepared to stop. You can find the latest updates on highway conditions here.

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.

Update 5:30 p.m.: the advisory has been ended for most of Manitoba.
