Environment Canada warns Saskatoon and Southern Saskatchewan will face a “major winter storm beginning on Saturday.”
The late-winter chill comes to the area via Alberta and promises “a heavy dump of snow and very strong easterly winds,” with 10 to 25 centimetres of snow before the end of the weekend. Despite the bad news, Saskatoon will be spared the brunt of the storm as the corridor stretching from Kindersley to Moose Jaw is expected to get the heaviest snowfall.
Residents are advised to check weather conditions before venturing outside as road conditions and visibility are sure to suffer over the weekend as a result of the storm. For warnings and updates, see the Environment Canada site.
