Heavy wet snow will delay harvest in many parts of central and northern Saskatchewan.
The weather office says weekend snow and rain followed along the Yellowhead highway, dumping snow through Lloydminster, Saskatoon and Yorkton.
West central areas were also hard hit, including Outlook, Rosetown and Kindersley.
Environment Canada expects the snow to melt this week with warmer weather, although temperatures remain below normal.
The chair of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers, Jim Wickett of Rosetown, says his area received 15 centimeters of snow on the weekend.
He says much of the snow has started to melt, but it will likely be one to two weeks before harvest can resume.
He says cereal grain crops could be downgraded by the wet weather, but oilseeds should not be affected.
He says harvest ranges from 50 to 90 percent complete in the Rosetown district.
