Storm Warning Ended-More Snow Expected Into Monday

We can’t say we weren’t warned. Storm Warnings went up before the weekend, and the weather that came in brought a massive amount of snow that has made getting around very difficult.

And now the temperature is about to take a dip.

620CKRM’s Precision Weather is calling for another 10 centimeters of snow Sunday Night, and a few more centimeters Monday before the temperature dips into the minus 20’s for a couple of nights.

The City of Regina has declared the snow routes are going into effect Monday morning for 24 hours. Those streets are dotted with signs that are blue, with a white snowflake on them. All cars on these routes have to off the street by 6:00 am Monday morning. This allows the city plows to get out and do a “curb to curb” clearing of this snow. The city has some equipment out trying to manage the snow as it continues to pile up and drift on major roadways.

In Saskatoon, it seems there was even more snow than in Queen City. The City of Saskatoon has been asking people to stay of the roads unless you had a 4×4. Crews in the Bridge City are also out trying to keep the major routes clear.

On the highways, most roads in and out of Saskatoon were “travel not recommended” by the “Highway Hotline”.

Late Sunday afternoon, highways east of Regina around Qu’Appelle and Moosomin were closed because of the treacherous conditions.

Highways south of Regina are also “travel not recommended” . The conditions are changing hourly, so its always best to check with the government’s “Highway Hotline”. The link is here:
