A very intense low pressure system has moved off to northern Manitoba and continues to track rapidly eastward. However, winds remain severe across east central Saskatchewan in its wake, with continuing gusts to 90 or 100 km/h over much of the area early this morning. The strong winds there will continue for much of the morning before rapidly diminishing in the afternoon.

North East School Division has had to cancel several buses due to the weather and road conditions.
