Parts of Saskatchewan under snowfall warning

Parts of east and east-central Saskatchewan including Yorkton, Melville, Nipawin, Melfort, Humboldt, Esterhazy and Hudson Bay are under a snowfall warning.

Environment Canada says the first of a pair of low pressure systems will begin affecting southern Saskatchewan Saturday night  bringing significant precipitation to the northeastern grainbelt. Most areas will see a period of rain overnight or Sunday morning, but as temperatures cool, heavy snow is expected to set in through the day and continue into Sunday night. This first wave of moisture will bring 15 to 25 cm of snow to the area by early Monday.

A second system stalling to the east will bring waves of additional snowfall into the province later Monday and Tuesday as well. At this time, much of the northern grainbelt looks to receive an additional 10 cm of snow through the end of Tuesday. Snowfall warnings may be expanded to other areas in southern and central Saskatchewan as this second system continues to develop.

This snow is expected to hit Regina Sunday night with 5 to 10 centimeters of snow in the forecast with more snow being called for on Monday and Tuesday.
