People in south Saskatchewan will have to keep the snow brushes and shovels handy as the trend of snowy mornings continues.
Friday morning people in Regina and Saskatoon woke up to another light dusting of snow which was just enough to make the roads slick in spots.
The Highway Hotline is reporting winter driving conditions, with icy patches and loose, swirling snow around Saskatoon, Regina, Moose Jaw, Swift Current, North Battleford and the Yorkton Melville area.
Environment Canada meteorologist Dan Fulton said the forecast is calling for light snow to continue overnight Friday and through the day Saturday.
Saskatoon could see five centimetres of snow overnight and two to four centimetres Saturday.
“Regina’s looking like five to 10 (centimetres) tonight and two to four tomorrow,” Fulton said.
Saturday could be spent shovelling with as much as 12 centimetres of snow on the ground.
Fortunately for fans planning to attend Saturday’s Rider game, Fulton said the snow should move out later in the day before kickoff.
“After that we’re actually looking at clearing skies Saturday night and then we’re in for a fairly long stretch of clear but cold weather,” Fulton said.
The snow this week caught a few people in Saskatchewan off guard.
“It was a bit of a shock, but it had to happen eventually – at least it held off until after Halloween,” one man said in Regina.
Most people said they thought the snow would hold off until Remembrance Day.
Some people said they were prepared for the snow to fly Nov. 1, but others admitted they were left scrambling in the morning to find mitts and car scrapers.
While some may have been dreading the start of winter, at the University of Regina (U of R), international students from Mexico were thrilled to see snow for the first time. The U of R posted this video to their website.
