A snowfall warning was issued early Sunday for Winnipeg and much of southern Manitoba as a Colorado low prepares to move into the province.

Environment Canada says 15 to 20 centimetres of snow is expected to fall today through Monday. However, the forecast office warns localized regions could see between 20 to 25 centimetres.

“This event is part of a major winter storm that will affect Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and a wide swath of the United States including Montana, the Dakotas, and Minnesota,” the warning says.

Snowfall is expected to gradually taper off Monday afternoon through Tuesday.

Winds could gust up to 60 to 70 km/h through Monday, significantly impacting travel on the roads. Manitoba highway conditions are available by visiting Manitoba511.ca. Those travelling in Saskatchewan can visit hotline.gov.sk.ca.
