Alberta Clipper and Cold to Arrive Monday

Its been hard to complain too much about this winter. By and large its been mild, but next week things could turn wild.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement warning of the arrival of an Alberta Clipper Monday, which will see temperatures drop dramatically and bring treacherous driving conditions to most of Saskatchewan Monday and Tuesday.

“So far, southern Saskatchewan and most of southern Manitoba look to avoid the heavier snow forecast to the north. Even so, a wintery mix of lighter precipitation including freezing rain will be possible Sunday night and Monday morning.” reads the statement from Environment and Climate Change Canada.

For central Saskatchewan through central Manitoba, current indications show 10 to 20 cm of fresh snow falling Sunday night through Tuesday morning.

In Regina the temperature is expected to drop from plus 2 degrees Monday during the day, to -21 late Monday night.

This storm should pass through by Wednesday, and there is the expectation of more mild weather later next week.

If you are planning to travel around the province Monday or Tuesday next week you may want to adjust your plans, and as always, check with the Highway Hotline to check road conditions before starting out.
