At least 23 accidents were reported on Regina city streets Monday as parts of southern Saskatchewan were hit by a significant snow storm.
Road crews have been working all night to clear the streets, but intersections and side streets are icy.
On the highways, Saskatchewan RCMP report a jackknifed semi blocked highway 1 east of Regina Monday afternoon.
Jason Knight with Environment Canada says the storm has quickly moved to the east.
“A very narrow band of pretty intense snow pushed across southern Saskatchewan,” said Knight.
“It left about 5-10 centimetres of snow in areas like Regina and Yorkton. But Moose Jaw was the big winner receiving about 13 cm of snow. Kipling also received nearly the same,” added Knight.
Knight says we are still anticipating a warm-up at the end of the week.
“But it will be hard getting there.” Said Knight. “Unfortunately we are going to be pushing through some pretty cold weather over the next few days.”
Knight says we can expect extreme windchill values to reach near minus 43 in Regina at times.
