Thousands in southern Saskatchewan are waking up to see their green grass replaced with a layer of snow.
About three centimetres fell in the Regina area overnight.
But, communities in the western portion of the province saw significantly more.
“There was a band from roughly Leader to Val Marie-Mankota area that saw about 10 (centimetres),” said Environment Canada’s Dan Fulton. “Conditions were pretty bad there yesterday.”
Higher elevations of Cypress Hills experienced significant freezing rainfall, which created messy road conditions.
Looking through the weekend and into the next week, Fulton said it appears it will warm up a bit come Sunday, but more precipitation is expected before then.
“We’re actually looking at rain coming in Sunday afternoon. So, get through today and tonight and things should improve a little bit for the end of the weekend.”
