Environment Canada says winter weather is showing up in full force Sunday afternoon, and some areas are now under a blizzard warning.

High winds will combine with snow and blowing snow to cause reduced visibility for the areas under the warning.

From Environment Canada:

An arctic cold front sweeps through southern Manitoba Sunday afternoon.

Northwest winds of 50 gusting to 70 km/h combined with falling snow is expected to reduce visibilities in blowing snow to less than 400 m for 4 to 6 hours late Sunday afternoon and into Sunday evening.

Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility.

Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Anyone who is not dressed warmly is at risk of frostbite and hypothermia in cold weather.

Winnipeg forecast

The capital city is not currently under the blizzard warning, however, snow and high winds are still on the way.

Environment Canada says Winnipeg can expect 2-4 cm of snow throughout the day.

And, while the day is expected to start fairly mild at -5, that arctic cold front will cause the temperature to drop to -13 in the afternoon. 

Wind speeds will also pick up beginning around noon, coming from the north at 40 km/h with gusts up to 60 km/h. That will be enough to make the temperature feel more like -26 with the wind chill.

The temperature will drop to -22 overnight and winds will pick up to 50 km/h from the north and gust to 70 km/h. That will cause a wind chill of -36.
