People in Regina and southwest Saskatchewan will want to keep their shovels and snow brushes close to hand.
After a weekend that brought 12 centimetres of the white stuff to the Regina area and even more to the west, more snow is on the way, according to Environment Canada.
“(The) heaviest hit area of the province was the southwest, kind of around the Cypress Hills area,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Dan Fulton, adding the area got 20 to 30 centimetres of snow over the weekend.
As of Monday morning, snowfall warnings continued for much of southwest Saskatchewan.
Fulton said the warnings would likely remain in effect for the rest of the day.
He said a second system went through the Rockies early Monday morning and continued moving east.
“That’ll develop another band of snow, which will go right through the southernmost part of the province so we’re expecting another 10 centimetres or so for those areas under the snowfall warning.”
The snowfall warning was extended to the Estevan area early Monday morning. Although the area didn’t see much snow over the weekend, Environment Canada warned the area could also see 10 centimetres of snow.
Fulton said he’s expecting another five centimetres of snow in areas along the Trans-Canada Highway, including Regina.
