The nasty weather may be over but some schools are still closed Friday morning due to poor road conditions. 

All schools in the Prairie Rose School Division, which oversees schools near Carman, Man., are closed on Friday. Students and staff are to stay home, says an email from the division.

Park West, Mountain View and Rolling River school divisions are cancelling buses for the day, though schools will be open.

A blizzard warning that was in effect for southwest Manitoba, including Killarney, Boissevain, Melita, Virden, Minnedosa and Riding Mountain, has ended.

Freezing rain and winter storm warnings that were in effect for central Manitoba and northern Manitoba, respectively, have also ended. 

On Friday, periods of snow are in the forecast for much of the province.
