Snow, blowing snow and cold wind chills expected as a significant weather system tracks across Sask. on Wednesday

Saskatchewan is going to get another stark reminder that it’s January Tuesday night and Wednesday, with a classic blast of winter weather.

A system moving in from southern Alberta will spread throughout southern and central Saskatchewan, bringing snow and blowing snow along with strong winds and dangerous wind chills starting Tuesday evening and lasting throughout Wednesday.

Environment Canada’s Terri Lang said the greatest amounts of snowfall will be in west central portions of the province.

“Yes, the heaviest snow looks to be falling in west-central parts of the province, sort of the Lloydminster, Kindersley, Saskatoon, Prince Albert and eastward areas there,” Lang said.

Regina and Moose Jaw are both expecting around five centimeters of snow, with wings gusting to 60 km/h, with wind chills sub -30C Tuesday night before moderating throughout the day Wednesday.

Lang is also reminding people to avoid travel if possible and to check the Highway Hotline if they must head out on the road.
