The provincial highways department has begun closing highways, as plows can't keep up with the volume of snow.
- A stretch of Highway 16 has been closed, from Highway 50 to Newdale.
- Highway 5 has also been closed from Highway 1 to Highway 68.
There are reports that other highways may also close.
Every single road in Westman remains under some kind of winter weather warning.
West of Brandon, the Trans-Canada highway is snow- or ice-covered all the way to the Saskatchewan border, with swirling snow and poor visibility.
East of the city, the highway is marginally better, but only marginally.
Veterans Way is snow-covered with poor visibility.
North and south of Brandon, Highway 10 is in slightly better shape. The road is mostly described as partly covered, with fair visibility, although there are sections that are fully covered between Brandon and Souris.
Highway 2 through Westman is snow-covered with poor visibility.
