Southwest residents woke up to a winter wonderland this morning.

The amount of snow that Environment and Climate Change Canada predicted yesterday's storm would bring, was 10 to 15 centimetres. 

While the exact amount is hard to determine due to winds, Meteorologist Terri Lang said a seven centimetre depth was recorded at Swift Current's automatic weather station. 

"I think it will eventually melt," Lang added. "But not in the next few days, just because the temperatures are going to be well below freezing with not much in the way of recovery. I don't think it's here for the season quite yet because it's pretty early for that."

The forecasted highs for this week range from -12 to -5, with the possibility of more flurries coming through tomorrow.
