We had quite a run. From Hallowe’en to New Year’s Eve we enjoyed mostly warmer temperatures, little snow, and few storms.
So much for that. Winter is back.
In and around Regina there was upwards of 5cms of snow from Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday morning. That was on top of the last gift of snow the week before. Roads in the city have quite a bit if snow on them, making them slippery in spots.
The Regina By-pass was “travel not recommended” this morning, but the conditions have improved somewhat.
Outside of Regina, there are reports of poor visibility on Highways 2 and 36 south of Moose Jaw.
In Saskatoon, the plows will be out on the roads doing the major streets today after 15 centimetres (6 inches) of snow fell, combined with strong winds.
Highways in and out of Yorkton are “travel not recommended” this morning, with snow and wind making things treacherous. There are reports of poor visibility in that area as well.
As always, before hitting the road and driving town to town, check the latest conditions on the Highway Hotline.
