Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Southwestern Saskatchewan, with up to 20 to 30 centimetres of snow falling from Saturday night through to Monday.
The forecast is calling for long periods of light snow, with additional accumulations as a result of shorter and heavier bursts of snow.
The steady snowfall could deliver accumulations of five to 10 centimetres over a 12 hour period throughout the entire Southwest.
The warning is in effect for the Swift Current – Herbert – Cabri – Kyle – Lucky Lake, the Leader – Gull Lake, plus the Shaunavon – Maple Creek – Val Marie – Cypress Hills forecast regions.
Individuals who are travelling this weekend are advised to check the Highway Hotline (http://hotline.gov.sk.ca/) for the most current road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times as a result of heavy snowfalls.
