Winnipeggers face a cold Saturday morning as they begin to venture out to clean up from a Friday snowstorm.

Blowing snow that began Jan. 3 tapered off at about 4 a.m. this morning, Environment Canada said.

The snow led to hundreds of accident reports in Winnipeg on Friday, poor highway conditions across southern Manitoba and the temporary closure of Interstate 29 in North Dakota overnight.

A front-end loader also collided with a hydro pole on Berry Street, the Winnipeg Police Service said.

As of 9 a.m. in Winnipeg, the temperature was -24 C, near today's forecast high of -23 C. Northwest gusts bring the windchill to -37.

The normal high for Jan. 4 is -13 C.

Temperatures in Winnipeg are expected to remain below normal until Friday, when a high of -6 C is forecast.

The weather is also causing difficulties with the delivery of the Winnipeg Free Press on a number of routes in rural areas due to road conditions.

Drivers will attempt to deliver papers later today or Sunday.
