Roads in many parts of Saskatchewan could be slick as Environment Canada is calling for freezing rain in many areas, including Regina, Moose Jaw, Estevan, Weyburn and Swift Current.
Freezing rain warnings are in place Thursday morning for southwest Saskatchewan, with the risk for freezing rain still in place for Regina and Moose Jaw later Thursday.
While the southern part of the province deals with freezing rain, the northeast part could see snow, and a lot of it as up to 10 centimeters is forecast to fall in the Melfort, Nipawin, Hudson Bay and Creighton areas.
A low pressure system will develop in southern Alberta Wednesday and track northeastward across Saskatchewan on Thursday. Snow associated with the system will move into the region Thursday morning. 10 to 15 cm are expected by the time the snow tapers off Friday morning.
Rapidly accumulating snow and freezing rain could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
