A low pressure system moving through the northern United States has been spreading snow across southern Manitoba today, which will also push into southeastern regions late this afternoon and early this evening. The snow will continue throughout the night, then taper off from west to east on Monday morning as the low pressure system moves over the Great Lakes. General snowfall totals will be from 10 to 15 cm. Some blowing snow is also possible with the snow as north winds of 30 gusting 50 km/h are expected. This heavy snowfall will also affect North Dakota and Minnesota. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight. Snowfall warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected.

Light to moderate snowfall continues to spread northeastward into eastern North Dakota and far northwestern Minnesota. Snow will continue tonight. Blowing snow in open areas will cause reductions in visibilities. -NWS Grand Fork, ND
