It could be a white Christmas for many in Saskatchewan.
On Friday afternoon, snow began falling in Calgary. That system is making its way into the western side of the province.
At times heavy snow and blowing snow is expected.
“From North Battleford, all the way down to Swift Current and into the Cypress Hills,” explained John-Paul Cragg, meteorologist with Environment Canada.
“Through the day Saturday five to 10 centimetres or nearly four inches of snow could fall in that area with some blowing snow because of heavy winds.”
That system will make its way through Saturday and into Christmas Day along the area from highway 1 all the way to the U.S. border.
And those in the south east will need to brace themselves to dig out, not from presents, but from a big dump of snow.
What is called a Colorado-low is making its way from the States into Canada and will brush past that portion of Saskatchewan.
“Looks like we could see between 15 and 20 centimetres of snow in that area, up to eight inches of snow by the time Boxing Day is done,” Cragg said.
