It’s cold and wet in Saskatchewan.
Most of southern Saskatchewan is seeing temperatures at or below zero.
“That is quite cold for this time of year,” said Environment Canada’s Amanda Prysizney. “Daytime high for this time of year? Plus 16.”
In terms of snow fall, most of southern Saskatchewan is in the process of receiving precipitation from a low pressure system that’s come in from Alberta. As a result, some communities have received quite a bit of snow fall.
“In the Kindersley area, they’ve received 10 centimetres of snow so far,” said Prysizney. “Just outside of Outlook we had a report of around 15 centimetres.”
Several of the provinces highways are under winter driving advisories, with a stretch of Highway 11 between Davidson and Chamberlain not being recommended for travel.

Prysizney noted things do look to improve for Saskatchewan, as this system is tracking east.
