Winter weather set to return to southeast Saskatchewan

Even though it’s spring, winter weather is not over in Saskatchewan.

A Colorado low could bring a blast of winter to the southeastern corner of the province by the middle of this week.

Brad Vrolijk with Environment Canada says Estevan, Moosomin and Carlyle could all see up to 10 cm from the system which is making its way to southern Manitoba.

That all depends on how the system tracks according to Vrolijk.

“That could be a little higher if the system tracks a little bit further west, it could even be down to just a trace if it tracks further east.”

Montana, North Dakota and Manitoba will feel the brunt of the storm. Parts of southern Manitoba could see up to 50 to 70 cm of snow before the end of the week.

“Certainly if anyone in Saskatchewan has travel plans mid-week into Manitoba, even into areas like Brandon, definitely keep an eye on the weather cause that may not even be possible come mid-week if the more pessimistic outcomes from the system are realized.”

Regina will likely see some flurries from the system, while Saskatoon should escape the spring storm entirely.

Environment Canada has issued a winter storm watch for Estevan, Weyburn, Moosomin, Carlyle, Stoughton, Grenfell. Environment Canada says winds could reach speeds of 70-90 km/hr beginning as early as Tuesday evening and then carrying over to Wednesday morning.
