Today will see the showers continue along with fog patches. The wind will be from the northwest at 20 km/h (12 mph) this afternoon as the temperature remains steady near 1C(34F).
Tonight will be cloudy with a 60% chance of flurries this evening. The wind will remain northwest at 20 km/h (12 mph) as the temperature drops to -3C(26F).
The roads in the city are treacherous. There is water laying on top of the ice making traction 0. The Trans Canada opened for a while yesterday but is closed again this morning. If it freezes as forecast roads will be even worse tomorrow morning
A roof collaped at a vegetable farm near here where 3 workers were injured and 1 killed. I guess the snow build up along with the rain became too much for the roof.
Several highways in southern Manitoba are closed again this morning, because of the freezing rain we're receiving.
The Trans Canada highway from Winnipeg to the Saskatchewan border is closed.
Highway 16 to Saskatchewan is also closed.
Highway 6 from Highway 101 to the St. Martin Junction at Highway 513 is closed.
Highway 10 from Brandon to Dauphin is closed.
Highway 5 from Dauphin to the Saskatchewan border.
All roads in the southern part of the province are ice-covered and slippery, so exercise caution if you have to drive.
