Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Carlyle - Oxbow - Carnduff - Bienfait - Stoughton

Active winter weather continues into the weekend for most of Southern Saskatchewan.

Another low pressure system will develop early Saturday morning in Southern Alberta and track eastward across Southern Saskatchewan this weekend. While there is still some uncertainty as to the exact path of this system, there is potential for freezing rain, significant snowfall, and blowing snow as the low crosses the province beginning Saturday morning.

Across the Northern Grainbelt, total snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm are possible from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon. Further south, temperatures will be slightly warmer bringing a mix of precipitation. There is potential for freezing rain in these areas Saturday morning followed by rain showers and snow later in the day as temperatures hover within a few degrees of the freezing mark. As the low continues to move east and deepen late Saturday into Sunday, visibility reductions in continued snow and blowing snow are possible as northwesterly winds gust to 60 km/h in the wake of the system.

Skies will clear from west to east throughout the day Sunday as cold Arctic air once again settles into the province.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
