People who live in parts of southern Saskatchewan woke up to a snow covered ground Saturday morning.
Environment Canada Meteorologist David Baggaley said Regina got one to two centimetres of snow overnight. Areas in the southwest corner of Saskatchewan saw a little more at two to four centimetres, or roughly one inch.
Baggaley said the fresh snow fell after freezing rain in some areas on Friday, which made roads slippery.
According to the Highway Hotline, there were a few roads in the Swift Current area with “travel not recommended” status, including Highway 4 south through Cadillac, but that was removed before sunrise.
The snow likely won’t stick through the weekend, as Baggaley explained there will be a brief warm up over before cooling down again early in the work week.
“We have a little bit of milder temperatures coming up, so above zero temperatures and that’s near normal temperatures actually,” he said.
Baggaley predicts rain to move in and melt some of the snow on Sunday, with a high of four degrees in Regina.
Temperatures that are below normal will follow behind the system which is bringing rain. The forecast calls for a 60 per cent chance of flurries on Monday and Tuesday with a high of minus 10 by Thursday.
