Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Melfort - Tisdale - Nipawin - Carrot River

A wintery weekend for the Northern Grainbelt.

Just as one low pressure system exits the province...One that gave widespread freezing rain to the Northern Grainbelt early Friday...A second weather disturbance sets up to push through on the weekend.

This second weather system will bring a wintery mix to Southern Saskatchewan this weekend. The brunt will be felt along the Northern Grainbelt once again. This system will bring generally 5 cm locally up to 10 cm of snow to most of these areas beginning in the west Saturday. This snow will spread eastward across the Northern Grainbelt throughthe day Saturday and then persisting into Sunday. The system intensifies as it moves through the province, so the eastern half of the Northern Grainbelt could expect 10 perhaps 15 cm of snow in total.

Some freezing rain is possible with this weather system and gusty winds will give blustery conditions at times.

The system moves east of the province by Monday bringing a return to below normal temperatures.
