A developing low-pressure system is expected to bring significant snowfall and strong winds to southern Manitoba, Friday night through Sunday morning.

A snowfall warning was issued early Friday morning for southwestern Manitoba. It has since been expanded to include the City of Winnipeg, southeastern Manitoba and the Red River Valley.

Heavy snow is expected to start Friday evening and last until Sunday, with 10-20 centimetres expected before the storm rolls out Sunday morning.

Moderate easterly winds with this disturbance will produce areas of blowing snow on Friday night and into Saturday afternoon, which could result in deteriorating travel conditions. Additional warnings or advisories may be needed should forecast wind speeds or snowfall amounts increase further.

The snow will taper off on Saturday overnight over southwestern Manitoba and Sunday morning or soon thereafter over the Red River Valley and southeastern Manitoba as the system rolls out of the province.
