Manitoba Highways’ Derek Trainer said it’s a tough morning.

“Pretty much all highways across southern Manitoba are snow-covered and there is that blowing snow which is causing poor visibility on most highways. It is tough winter driving, definitely,” he said.

He says in some spots it is difficult to see where the lanes are.
