Regina residents are waking up to some heavy snow accumulation Monday morning.
Brad Vrolik with Environment Canada said up to 18 centimeters hit the queen city Sunday and overnight, adding more is on it’s way later Monday.
“Yeah, we’re expecting another batch of snow to develop a little later today over North Dakota and spread back into southeastern Saskatchewan again,” he said.
Vrolik said the second batch of snow will bring another five to ten centimeters Monday afternoon, and possibly another five centimeters later Monday night to Regina.
The heaviest snowfall so far has been between Indian Head and Wynyard where up to 25 centimeters has already hit the ground.
The snow has also created treacherous driving conditions on highways across the province.
The Highway Hotline has been reporting heavy snow and zero or reduced visibility on many roadways in the southeast and eastern part of the province, which has also forced the closure of numerous roads, including the Trans-Canada from Balgonie to just before Grenfell and Highway 6 from Regina to Southey, as well as Highway 10 from Balgonie to Fort Qu’Appelle.
Some flights at Regina’s airport have also been delayed or cancelled Monday.
Meanwhile Regina Catholic Schools has also cancelled all bus services for Monday morning and ask all parents to report absences.
Regina Public has done the same, cancelling all student transportation, they are also asking parents to report all absences.
More to come.
