Another stormy system that brought over 20 cm of snow to parts of Alberta and Saskatchewan over the weekend, continued to track east into southern Manitoba Sunday. 

"Strong winds and blowing snow were reported across southern Manitoba Sunday night, making for difficult travel in parts of the region," says Monica Vaswani, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. 

An additional 5 cm of snow is forecast for places like Winnipeg through Tuesday.

Snow associated with this system has also been falling in parts of northern Ontario. 

It picked up through the overnight hours for areas west of Lake Superior and will spread into the northeastern portions of the province Monday. 

According to Environment Canada, the snow is forecast to quickly change to ice pellets and then freezing rain before temperatures continue to rise Monday afternoon. 

Motorists are urged to use extra caution as untreated surfaces will become icy in some places.  

Northern Ontario is fresh off a storm that saw up to 25 cm of snow in some regions late last week, this time an additional 10 to 15 cm is possible.
