The worst of an Alberta Clipper is over for much of Saskatchewan.
The weather system brought snow and wind to the province – a combination that made a mess of roads Friday morning.
Early reports from Environment Canada pegged expected snowfall for the Regina area as two to four centimetres.
“With this clipper that kind of moved through the province overnight, it looks like the Regina area saw about five to seven centimetres of snow,” said Kirk Torneby, a meteorologist with Environment Canada.
Other areas of the province received more snow, with Saskatoon, Yorkton and Moosomin areas receiving snowfall warnings.
“These clippers that develop through Alberta and move through parts of the province move pretty quickly. In the worst case scenario, they usually drop about 10-15 centimetres of snow,” Torneby explained.
“It looks like the main band of snow was a bit further north of the Regina area as it moved through central parts of Saskatchewan.”
While the snow has stopped flying for now, the rest of the province – including the Regina area – could see more of the white stuff.
“It looks like the system’s kind of moving out and there’s a last little oomph of snow that should be moving through the Regina (Friday afternoon),” Torneby said.
“After the little bit moves through, no more than a few centimetres is expected throughout the day.”
Another clipper system is also on its way, according to Environment Canada. Torneby said it’s developing in Alberta and will move through Saskatchewan overnight Saturday into Sunday.
He predicted it will be further north and produce less than five centimetres of snow for Regina and southern Saskatchewan.
“There will be a little bit of snow that develops Saturday night into Sunday morning. Then after that a little bit of a cool down to below normal temperatures for the rest of the weekend and New Year’s,” Torneby said.
