It started late on Tuesday morning and it doesn’t appear like it’s stopping.
After a centimetre of snow dropped on Regina, much more is likely to fall tonight.
“As far as amounts are concerned, we are looking at the possibility of upwards of five centimetres total snowfall for the city of Regina,” said Heather Pimiskern, an Environment Canada meteorologist.
Environment Canada meteorlogist I just spoke to says Regina could see north of five centimetres of snow in the next little bit.
Looks like we're on our way towards that mark now.#skwx #abstorm #skstorm #yqr #news pic.twitter.com/QpyHArOc7J

The snow falling on the city is from the same system which saw significant amounts of snow dropped in Alberta. Calgary was one of the more hard hit areas, with some areas seeing over 40 centimetres of accumulated snow.
But, it’s that band, noted Pimiskern, which could see areas in and around Regina receive varying amounts.
“As we’ve seen in Alberta, some areas have seen localized, heavy amounts of snow, but it’s very localized. So, neighbouring communities may not see the same amount of snow.”
