WINTER STORM WARNING


Hazardous winter conditions are expected. Snow, at times heavy, and blowing snow expected. An Alberta clipper system will develop Sunday night and cross the prairies on Monday. Snow from this system will begin Sunday evening, with accumulations of 10 cm or more by Monday morning. Along with the snow, strong northerly winds gusting to 70 km/h will develop in the wake of this system during the overnight hours, persisting into Monday morning. The combination of the freshly fallen snow and strong, gusty winds will create visibility reductions in snow and blowing snow during this time. Expect travel to be impacted. Temperatures will remain well below seasonal come Monday as the cold front associated with this system passes through the region. Wind chill values will approach or exceed minus 30 Monday night with values falling to nearly minus 40 for some by early Wednesday morning. The bitter cold will begin to moderate later in the week. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to SKstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #SKStorm.
