Ice and blowing snow are creating slippery driving conditions.

Slippery roads are common in and outside the city as temperatures hover around freezing and blowing snow ravages the city. A second day of extreme winter conditions is continuing to put stress on drivers as 15-25 centimetres of snow continues to fall.

"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," Environment Canada says.

They say strong winds will continue to be an issue for travellers into the night.

"If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance."

Manitoba 511 is reporting highways around the City of Winnipeg are partly snow or ice-covered, with many experiencing blowing and drifting snow.

St. James Street at Notre Dame Avenue, both ways, are closed due to hydro pole repairs. Drivers are sharing McGilvary Boulevard and Pembina Highway towards St. Norbert are icy. The Perimeter Highway is partly snow-covered.

The winter weather is expected to cease overnight as the storm moves out of the city.
