Snowfall warnings out for parts of SK

It may sound hard to believe, but it is Saskatchewan and it is March.

On the same day where temperatures were well above zero in many parts of Saskatchewan, Environment Canada has issued snowfall warnings for central Saskatchewan including Lloydminster, Saskatoon, the Battlefords, Kindersley, Prince Albert. Melfort and Nipawin.

The weather office says a Pacific weather system spreading snow across southern Alberta this evening will move into Saskatchewan by Saturday morning. The slowly moving low will move across southern Saskatchewan throughout the day on Saturday and through Manitoba on Sunday. The largest snowfall amounts of 15-20 cm are expected north of the low track over the northern grainbelt. The accompanying cold front will move through southern portions of the province on Saturday night bringing flurries with a risk of freezing rain.

While Saskatoon and central Saskatchewan gets snow, the southern part of the province will see another day of temperatures above zero, but Environment Canada says expect snow mixed with ice pellets and freezing rain Saturday night into Sunday morning.
