Some fresh snow and strong winds in the southeast could lead to challenges for commuters on Wednesday.

Environment Canada is calling for some light snow on Wednesday with winds reaching 70 kph.

The temperature is also expected to drop to around -19 C during the afternoon, with the wind making it feel colder than -30 C from mid-morning on.

Swirling and loose snow were reported on highways around the southeast in the Highway Hotline's 6 a.m. update. For travellers heading west, visibility was reported as reduced south of Moose Jaw, and travel was not recommended around Swift Current.

Drivers will want to be sure to pack an emergency kit (learn more about winter vehicle maintenance here, and packing a kit here), and check the latest road conditions before hitting the highway.
