The snowfall warning has ended for the city of Winnipeg, but remains in effect for much of southeastern Manitoba.

Around 13 cm of snow fell in Winnipeg, making streets difficult to navigate and drive on this morning. rsz 20190107 051650

City crews are out attempting to clear the large dumping of snow before the morning rush. Motorists are reminded to use caution when driving around heavy equipment.

A number of school divisions across the province are closed this morning, while many more will not have bus service.

The system is now headed east and will dump more snow in Manitoba before heading into Ontario.

Areas still under the snowfall warning can expect to see anywhere from 10-15 cm of snow by the time the system moves out of the province.

From Environment Canada:

Snowfall warning

Snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 15 cm is expected.

Snow tapering off this morning.

A low pressure system will continue to bring heavy snow to southern Manitoba this morning. System snowfall totals of 10 to 15 cm can be expected. The snow will taper off from west to east Monday morning.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.

Blowing snow advisory

Blowing snow Monday night into Tuesday over western Manitoba.

A cold front will bring blowing snow and strong northwest winds of 40-50 km/h to western Manitoba beginning this evening.

Blowing snow is expected to diminish Tuesday evening when the winds abate. Visibilities will be reduced to 800 metres or less at times.

Blowing snow advisories may be issued for regions to the east as the cold front tracks eastward.

Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

The areas in red are currently under the warning. The areas in grey are currently under a blowing snow advisory
