Residents could see as much as ten to 20 centimetres of snow hit southwest Saskatchewan between Friday night and Saturday morning according to a statement from Environment Canada.
The special weather statement credited the snowfall to a low-pressure system in Montana.
“A developing low-pressure system in Montana will spread snow into southern Saskatchewan on Friday night. As the low tracks eastwards into North Dakota, snow will spread through southeastern Saskatchewan into southern Manitoba.
“The snow is forecast to begin in southwestern Saskatchewan on Friday evening, move across southern Saskatchewan into southwestern Manitoba Friday night, and then push across southern Manitoba Saturday into Saturday evening.”
There is some uncertainty as to how much snow the southwest region will see.
“The primary concern is that this system could end up further south which could substantially decrease the amount of snow that would fall across the southern Prairies.”
Residents may have to take extra precautions while on the road starting tomorrow evening, although it is not a certainty.
“Confidence with this system at this time is low to moderate due to the variability of the system's track. It is possible that over the next 24 hours the track of the low may shift further south, limiting the snowfall amounts and blowing snow potential.”
