RCMP are advising motorists to exercise caution when navigating cloverleafs on the Perimeter Highway and Trans-Canada Highway near Winnipeg.

The warning comes after Friday’s snowstorm, which brought with it blizzard-like conditions and major drifting.

Environment Canada lifted the winter storm warning late Friday, but replaced it with a wind chill warning. Temperatures will feel like -40°C tonight until Monday afternoon.

Snow plows were out Saturday morning to improve access for motorists and residents in every corner of the city. Residential plowing will begin on Sunday night and continue through next Wednesday.

Vehicles parked in violation of the residential parking ban will receive a $150 ticket ($75 if paid early), and may be towed.
