Stretches of the Trans-Canada Highway continues to be closed in sections across Manitoba due to winter storm activity.

Manitoba Roads posted to social media Saturday morning that Highway 1 was closed between Portage la Prairie and Highway 16.

Manitoba Roads began posting warnings to the social media platform X Friday, warning of several road closures as a system moves in from Saskatchewan.

"#MBHWY1 Caution on HWY-1 Both Directions from HWY-21 to Jct Highway 351. All Lanes Closed," said one post.

The Manitoba 511 website showed Highway 1 closed from Winnipeg all the way west to Griswold, Man. Friday evening. Reduced visibility was also reported on surrounding roads.

Environment and Climate Change Canada expects around five centimetres of snow to fall overnight Friday, but gusty winds are likely to continue into Saturday.

This is a developing story and will be updated as weather conditions change.
