Parts of southern Manitoba are again under a freezing rain warning Tuesday morning.
"Brandon, Manitoba, for example, (has experienced) a lot of freezing drizzle in the overnight period," says Eric Dykes, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada.
With a continued risk of freezing rain in the area, Dykes warns of potentially slick conditions in the southwestern corner of the province.
"We could have really icy roads come mid-morning (Tuesday) onwards," says Dykes.
Looking eastward toward the capital, there is a "very brief chance" of freezing rain occurring.
"We're looking more towards the afternoon with the onset of the snow," explains Dykes. "The potential will be for just a quick shot of some freezing rain in through the Red River Valley."

A band of freezing rain will affect portions of southeastern Saskatchewan and southwestern Manitoba beginning this morning.
The area of freezing rain will move from west to east over the next few hours and may be expanded to cover more of southern Manitoba if necessary.
Conditions are expected to improve by mid morning in southeastern Saskatchewan and by Tuesday afternoon in southwestern Manitoba.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.
Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.
Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.
