Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued a special weather statement for Swift Current and the surrounding area as an Alberta clipper moves into the area. 

The mild weather we have been experiencing is making way for more active winter weather early next week. 

The clipper system is expected to develop on Sunday night and work its way across the prairies on Monday.  

According to Environment Canada, southern Saskatchewan and most of southern Manitoba should avoid the heavier snowfall that is expected in the northern part of the province. We could still expect some light freezing rain Sunday night and into Monday morning. 

Daytime highs later Monday are expected to be well above the freezing mark before dropping rapidly as the clipper moves through. 

Winds are expected to gust up to 70 km/h because of the system and morning low temperatures on Tuesday could drop as low as –20 degrees with wind chills values in the –30 to –35 range. 

Environment Canada says additional warnings and advisories may be issued in the coming days.
