The first winter storm of the year has almost made its way through Saskatchewan.
The winter storm has already dumped heavy snow on Cypress Hills and other areas in Sotuh west Saskatchewan, with winter storm warnings in effect for much of Monday.
Jeremy Kusyk, Meteorologist for Environment Canada, says the storm will start to weaken early Tuesday.
“We’re expecting it to track eastward into Manitoba,” Kuzyk said. “But some areas are still getting rain. And in the extreme southwest, some snow.”
Snow did not make its way into Regina, as Kuzyk says snow will stay to the extreme south of the province.
In the meantime, that low pressure system brought heavy snow Cypress Hills Provincial Park area – there were reports from the weather office of 35 centimeters of Monday afternoon.
It looks like southern Saskatchewan will be past the worst of the storm later this week as sunshine is expected to return and daytime highs returning to double digits.
