Blizzard Warning for Southern Saskatchewan

Environment Canada has issued a blizzard warning for southern Saskatchewan including Regina and Moose Jaw.

This is an upgrade from the snowfall warning issued yesterday. High winds and heavy snow are expected from around supper time tonight into tomorrow afternoon when the wind and snow will taper off.  Wind gusts could top 70 kilometres an hour.

Environment Canada says we could see between 15 to 25 cms of snow between tonight and tomorrow.  There will be light snow off and on all day Friday as this storm starts to move in.

The high winds and snow will make travelling more difficult and potentially cause “white outs” on the highways. Make sure you check the highway hotline before starting out.
