Winnipeg streets and highways throughout southern Manitoba are extremely slippery Monday morning.
A clipper began to impact southern Manitoba Sunday, with several centimetres of wet snow falling in mild temperatures. Areas closer to the US border have had well over 10 cm of snowfall, while Winnipeg has seen between 5 and 10 cm of snow.
The mild temperatures and wet snow have combined to leave several roadways covered in ice.
Inside the city, residential streets and lesser travelled routes are extremely icy. Some major routes have experienced melting already, however, several are snow-covered and icy.
Outside the city, drivers have reported tough conditions on several highways throughout the evening.
Highway 1 west of Winnipeg has especially been in poor condition with one driver calling it "sheer ice" travelling from Brandon to Winnipeg. They reported going 60-70 km/h the entire trip.
Drivers on most other major highways have reported the same poor conditions with ice, and drifting snow making travel difficult.
As of 4:30 a.m. there are no closed highways in southern Manitoba due to the weather.
Snow is expected to let up early Monday morning with a clearing sky and a high of +1.
It could be quite a wet week with snow and rain expected to begin again Tuesday evening and lasting through the rest of the week except for a break on Thursday.
