Snow moving in this evening

An area of light to moderate snow was moving into southern MB from the west, with the leading edge of the main snow band around Portage La Prairie as of 5:30 pm. Brandon picked up a quick 2 cm of snow in the late afternoon as the snow band moved through. The area of snow was moving towards Winnipeg at 50 km/h, and should move into the city from the west by 6:30-7 pm. Visibilities will drop to 1 km or less at times in moderate snow, and gusty southerly winds in the Red River valley could give visibility of 300 m or less at times in snow and blowing snow. The snow should end by midnight but then gusty northwest winds behind this sytem will give locally poor visbilities again in blowing snow especially in open areas. Caution if on the roads tonight..
