After a week of melting and spring-like temperatures, winter is making a return to parts of southern Saskatchewan.
Environment Canada has issued storm watches and warnings covering the southern part of the province.
A low-pressure system is expected to bring a mix of heavy snow, freezing rain and strong winds Thursday evening and into Friday. Wind gusts could reach up to 70 kilometres per hour.
The storm system will hit the southwest corner first and move east Friday morning crossing over Regina, the southeast and then into Manitoba.
Regina and those along the U.S. border could see up to 10 centimetres, or about four inches of snow.
“You’ll have snow and blowing snow, you’ll have reduced visibility, road conditions will be difficult,” Natalie Hazel with Environment Canada said. “Even as a pedestrian I would argue winds at 50 kilometres gusting to 70 isn’t exactly comfortable.”
