On one of the busiest travel days of the holiday season, strong wind gusts created difficult driving conditions on Manitoba highways Sunday.

The winds made for low visibility on some southern Manitoba routes, bringing with it drifting snow in many locations.

According to the Manitoba Highways website, roads were mostly dry and did not have to be closed as a result of the winds, which got up to 60 km/h at times.

The winds were expected to diminish by late Sunday and into early Monday morning.
