Dense fog west.. freezing rain south
Travel outside Winnipeg is a bit hazardous this morning due to adverse weather conditions over southern MB. To the south of Winnipeg, a nearly stationary band of freezing rain along the US border has produced very icy conditions over the southern Red River valley, with numerous vehicles in the ditch off Hwy 75. Meanwhile, further west, dense fog is producing near zero visibilities over areas like Brandon, and Dauphin. Caution is advised if travelling outside Winnipeg today.
