Christmas plans are being disrupted in southeast Saskatchewan, southern Manitoba, North Dakota and Montana by a snowstorm which could see up to 50 centimeters of snow fall in areas near the U-S border.
Environment Canada has issued snowfall and winter storm warnings for the southeast thanks to a Colorado low. The snow will increase in intensity through the late afternoon and evening with heavy snow expected over most areas Sunday night.
Conditions should gradually improve from west to east starting Monday afternoon as this system continues to track eastward away from the region with blowing snow and reduced visibilities persisting until the winds die down.
Those who are travelling are strongly advised to check out the Highway Hotline before venturing out, and to have a road safety kit with them.
