"On Tuesday, southern Manitoba will pick up between 2-5 cm of snow, but the bigger impact on travel is expected Tuesday afternoon and evening," warns Weather Network meteorologist Doug Gillham.

Between 5-10 cm of snow is forecast in places like Regina and Saskatoon, Sask., while parts of southern Manitoba, including the city of Brandon, could see upwards of 10 cm.

"The snow will be accompanied by decent wind gusts between 40-50 km/h, which means blowing and drifting snow is likely starting Tuesday afternoon," Gillham adds. 

Drivers are being urged to keep an eye on the forecast and adjust any travel plans accordingly.
