A winter storm is causing issues on the highways. 

RCMP are advising of poor winter driving conditions on the QEII Highway between Nisku and Red Deer. 

The roads are reportedly icy with very low visibility due to high winds and blowing snow.

Police say travel in the area is not recommended.

As of 12:30 p.m., roads in the Fort Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park and Edmonton area are in fair to poor condition. Snow is accumulating on the local highways with icy sections.
