Strong winds bring blowing snow around Winnipeg
Strong southerly winds gusting to 75 km/h in the Red River valley produced extensive blowing and drifting snow around Winnipeg area roadways, especially in exposed areas around the perimeter and highways to the north. Visibilities at the airport dropped to 1/2 mile in blowing snow, but visibilities were even lower at times as the attached video shows. Conditions improved in the evening as winds subsided.
