Snowfall - afternoon to early morning.

Snowfall, with total amounts of 10 to 15 cm continues.

A low pressure system tracking across southern Saskatchewan brought rain and snow into the province today. Precipitation continues to fall as snow over central Saskatchewan this evening and will continue overnight. The heaviest snow expected over areas near the Yellowhead highway to the east of Saskatoon with total accumulations of 10 to 15 cm possible by Saturday morning, when the snow will gradually taper off. This system will likely impact higway travel in these regions for the start of the holiday weekend, so the public is advised to monitor local weather and highway reports before travelling.

Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please continue to monitor your local media or Weatheradio for further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can call 1-800-239-0484 or send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #SKStorm.
