Winter storm warning in effect for SW Saskatchewan

Winter weather isn’t over for parts of Saskatchewan.

Environment Canada has a winter storm warning out for the southwest corner of the province including Maple Creek, Shaunavon, Leader and Gull Lake.

The weather office says a disturbance developing along the foothills of Alberta is expected to move eastward and spread snow into southwestern Saskatchewan beginning Friday night. The snow will persist on Saturday before gradually tapering off Saturday night or Sunday morning. Total snowfall accumulation of 10 to 25 cm are possible with the greatest amounts falling over the higher terrain of the Cypress Hills. In addition to the snow, gusty east to northeast winds will create poor visibilities in blowing snow especially on Saturday.

Regina and Moose Jaw are forecast to see snow on Saturday, but Environment Canada is not saying how much at this time.
