Snow and freezing rain spreading towards Winnipeg..
A low pressure system moving across southern MB is bringing a wintery mix of precipitation across southwest MB this afternoon, with snow and freezing rain being reported. Precipitation is falling in the form of snow north of the Yellowhead highway through the Riding Mtns and Dauphin area while freezing rain is being reported along and south of the Yellowhead highway. Freezing rain warnings have been issued for areas west of Winnipeg this afternoon including Portage LP and Brandon. This area of precipitation will move into Winnipeg later this afternoon, possibly starting as freezing rain or ice pellets before changing to snow this evening. Motorists are advised that highways are being reported as ice covered and slippery to the west of Winnipeg, and should be prepared for slick travel conditions on untreated roadways around Winnipeg and the RRV by the evening rush hour.
