Heavy snow has blanketed portions of Saskatchewan and southern Manitoba.
Environment Canada says Friday’s early morning snow is a result of an Alberta Clipper – which started Thursday morning.
This has prompted a snowfall warning for some regions of Saskatchewan by the weather office.
Expect snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 centimetres by Friday evening.
The clipper will track across the Prairies Friday leaving a swath of heavy snow and blowing snow in its wake.
Heavy snow began early Friday morning over eastern Saskatchewan.
Accompanying the heavy snow will be northwest winds with gusts up to 60 km/h which will combine with the falling snow to reduce the visibilities at times to less than one kilometre in blowing snow.
Regions surrounding the warned areas can expect 5 to 10 centimetres of snow during this period with blowing snow in open areas.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.
The Highway Hotline says rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Check your routes first.
Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
Regina city intersections will likely be icy and slippery and motorists are advised to use extra caution Friday.
Some flights at the Regina International Airport have been marked as “delayed” early Friday morning.
But it’s important travellers check their flights Friday to see if they are departing on time or if the flight has been delayed.
