Several highways remain closed throughout Southern Manitoba Friday morning due to poor winter driving conditions. 

That includes the Perimeter Highway which has now been closed for a sixth time this winter. 

RCMP began closing highways in western Manitoba around 9 p.m. as winds around 80 km/h and fresh snow combined for whiteout conditions. 

High winds have also made highway surfaces extremely polished causing very icy conditions. 

One caller to the radio station said he could only describe the Trans-Canada Highway west of Winnipeg as "brutal." That Highway is now one of over a dozen closures in the province. The caller says he wishes he had stayed home. 

Another caller who was travelling on Highway 75 south of Winnipeg said that while the highway was open, it shouldn't have been. She described complete whiteout conditions and several vehicles in the ditch. Highway 75 was closed later in the evening and remains closed as of 5 a.m. Friday.

That's likely the same for most highways that are open this evening as a blowing snow advisory continues for most of Southern Manitoba.
