Spring might have arrived on the calendar, but outside Mother Nature’s giving Saskatchewan a second helping of winter.
Environment Canada’s issued snowfall and winter storm warnings in the southern third of the province Friday morning.
According to meteorologist David Baggaley, the bulk of the snowfall will hit Regina by mid-morning.
“Most of the day, it’ll be snowy with often some blowing snow,” he said. “By late afternoon, the snow will begin to taper off and it’ll be ending in the evening.”
By Friday night, Baggaley said the Queen City could see around 10 centimetres of snow.
Areas closer to the U.S. border, which are under storm warnings, will get around 15 centimetres.
Baggaley said high winds coupled with the snow could make for tough conditions on the roads Friday. He said the Regina area could expect winds gusting up to 70 kilometres per hour.
Travel was not recommended early Friday morning on a number of highways in the area around Kindersley, including Highway 7 right to the Alberta border.
With conditions expected to change throughout the day, drivers were encouraged to check the province’s Highway Hotline before hitting the road.
