Travel was not recommended on numerous highways Friday after a winter storm swept through southern Saskatchewan.
As much as 25 centimetres of snow fell overnight, making roads treacherous across the southern part of the province.
The Trans-Canada Highway was closed between Belle Plaine and Moose Jaw but has since reopened. However, travel is still not recommended on several roads.
Another two to five centimetres is expected before the snowfall stops Friday. About 10 centimetres of snow is expected in Moosomin and northern parts of Estevan.
Drivers are being advised to check road conditions before heading out.
