Snow that fell overnight is causing varying driving conditions on highways around the southeast part of Saskatchewan.

The province's Highway Hotline says travel is not recommended on Highway 1 east of Wolseley to the Manitoba border.

It also advises against travel on Highway 9 a little north of Carlyle (specifically, north of the 48 junction).

Icy and slippery sections with heavy, loose, and swirling snow are causing the travel advisories in those areas.

Most highways around Estevan are listed as being in seasonal driving condition, with snowdrifts, and blowing and drifting snow.

Though roads appear better near Weyburn. Highway 39 from Midale to the Yellow Grass area is listed as being in seasonal driving condition. The same goes for Highway 13 east of Stoughton through Weyburn, and Highway 35 from just north of Weyburn south to the US border.

Estevan Police Service Sgt. Tyler McMillen said police were out looking for driving infractions over the night shift, with the extra snow on the roads.

He advised using caution on city streets, saying they'll become more icy as more traffic travels on them.

Light snow is expected to taper off around noon.
