Snow continues to fall in Saskatchewan.
Environment Canada issued snowfall warnings in areas across the province, including Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Swift Current and Cypress Hills.
Terri Lang, a Meteorologist with Environment Canada, said the system is beginning to move into Manitoba.
“We can expect the snow to continue through the night and probably start to taper off tomorrow from west to east.”
Most of the reports Lang has received have indicated much of the province have received 10 to 15 cm of snow, with the Cypress Hills area getting 24 cm and snow is still falling.
“The southeast corner, that’s in the milder air and that’s why it’s melting there, sort of Regina towards Estevan and Weyburn it’s not accumulating as much, but certainly through the rest of the province, it certainly is accumulating.”
Lang also said temperatures will begin to move back to seasonal as the weekend approaches.
