Another winter blast has arrived in southern Saskatchewan bringing with it a fair amount of snow.
Environment Canada said this system is a continuation from southern B.C. which has resulted in snow falling in Vancouver. The moisture associated with that system has made its way through Alberta and will affect areas in southwest Saskatchewan.
As of Sunday morning, a snowfall warning was in place for areas like Leader, Swift Current, Maple Creek, Shaunavon, and the surrounding communities.
Environment Canada stated the snow started falling Saturday, will continue Sunday and Monday. Up to 30 centimetres – or 12 inches – of snow could fall in some spots by the end of Monday. The sky will clear out Tuesday as a ridge of high pressure builds in the area.
Environment Canada confirmed about 10 cm of snow fell in the Swift Current area Saturday.
The Regina area is not expected to see as much precipitation as the southwest, however flurries are expected throughout Sunday and Monday. In total, as much as 20 cm could be on the ground once the system clears out.
Environment Canada said snowfall could be heavy at times, but it should lighten up on Monday.
