Are you ready? As we head into the final weekend of October, the area has been transformed into a winter wonderland overnight.
Most of Wednesday and Thursday's snow had melted by the end of the day for the most part, but Mother Nature came back for round 2 with even more snow falling overnight. This time, it did not melt as it hit the ground.
According to Manitoba 511, almost all highways in the region are reporting snow-covered and slippery sections.
Meanwhile, a snowfall warning remains in effect for southeastern Manitoba. Environment Canada says snowfall accumulations are expected to total between 10 and 20 cm continues. For Portage residents who think the amount we have already is enough, thankfully the community is not in the warning area. 2 to 4 centimeters of snow may still fall this morning though.
The highest amounts of snow are expected near the American and Ontario border. Most highways in North Dakota near the Manitoba border are also reporting slippery conditions.
