WEATHER ALERT: Snowfall Warnings issued for Regina and parts of southern Sask.

It’s been a warm few days for many in southern Saskatchewan, but Mother Nature is about to give us a dose of reality in the form of snow.

Snowfall Warnings are in effect for parts of southern Saskatchewan, including Regina, Moose Jaw and Swift Current.

Meteorologist Dave Carlsen, says a low pressure system will be moving up from south of the border Monday afternoon and night.

“It’s a Montana Low, so they don’t move as quickly as an Alberta Clipper and don’t provide as much snow as a Colorado Low, so it’s kind of in between,” Carlsen said.

Carlsen says affected areas can expect to see ten to 15 cm’s of snowfall, with the system getting heavier the further east you go.

“Yeah it looks like we are indeed going to see somewhere in the neighborhood of ten to 15 cm’s through the stretch of the warning that we have in place,” he said. “The warning goes from about Swift Current towards Yorkton, the closer you get to the Manitoba border the heavier the snow is likely going to be,” Carlsen added.

“It’s a fairly typical system, but still enough snow to hamper some travel out there,” Carlsen also mentioned.

Many areas will also see a drop to temperatures below zero for close to the next week.
