Spring has sprung, but Mother Nature is ignoring the calendar.
An Alberta Clipper tracking across the province Monday will keep parts of Saskatchewan looking wintery for the next couple of days.
Environment Canada is forecasting seven centimetres of snow for Saskatoon Monday afternoon evening, while the Kindersley region could get double the accumulation.
“It seems like it’s going to be a pretty narrow corridor of snow. Reaching Kindersley this afternoon then along that southeast diagonal line toward the Moosomin area,” meteorologist Justin Shaer said.
Snow is expected to fall in Regina as well, with the storm rolling in sometime on Monday night.
Freezing rain or ice pellets is in the forecast Monday night, followed by five to 10 centimetres – or two to four inches – of snow before clearing out Tuesday.
Shaer says we shouldn’t be surprised, adding it’s not out of the ordinary to get this much snow this late in the winter.
“It’s still March on the prairies, so there’s a lot of cold air to deal with.”
Late on Monday afternoon the Saskatchewan Highway Hotline posted travel advisories for highways around the Kerrobert area north of Kindersley.
