To put it plain and simple, it is nasty in Regina and other parts of southern Saskatchewan on Sunday night.
As you can see by the Highway Hotline camera on Highway 1 near Balgonie, visibility is at zero as a Colorado low pounds the area. Environment Canada says by the time this system moves out, we could receive up to a foot of snow.
In Regina, it is tough to get around because of the snow.
Traffic advisory – Multiple vehicles getting stuck on smaller side streets and at various locations around the city due to the volume of snow. Please do not travel out of your house unless it is an absolute emergency @reginapolice #yqrtraffic #Snowmageddon

This is supposed to last all night and into Monday morning before it clears off.
Anyone having to use a highway in the eastern part of the province is asked to check out the Highway Hotline first. Many highways in the Regina region have a “Travel Not Recommended” status on them at this time.
