A storm system developing over southern Alberta is forecast to track across southern Saskatchewan later this morning into tonight. This system is expected to bring in a large area of precipitation across southern Saskatchewan over the next 24 to 36 hours. Precipitation has begun across western Saskatchewan early this morning as an area of snow which may mix with or change to freezing rain overnight as milder air aloft moves in. Later this morning snow will intensify over the warning area, especially for areas along and north of the Yellowhead highway. For Saskatoon, indications are that snow will mix with or change to rain in the afternoon which should hold down snowfall amounts to about 5 cm. However, for areas north and east of the city, heavier snow is more likely. Snow will continue into Friday night before tapering off from west to east. In total, 10 to 20 cm of snow is possible over the warning area. This 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.
