The storm isn't here yet, but it's still comin'. While a special weather statement remains in effect, the southeast isn't expected to receive anything drastic for at least another 24 hours.
"We've kind of gotten a little first impulse that's going to be coming through Saskatchewan today, giving some heavy snow to certain regions. Right now it's affecting central Saskatchewan into the west, so Saskatoon's starting to get some heavy snow. Estevan itself today will see some light snow, but the serious accumulations are going to be when you drive north toward Moose Jaw or Regina," shared Environment Canada's Justin Shaer.
'When that passes today, you're going to get a little bit of freezing drizzle tonight, maybe some light flurries. Then Sunday is when that big portion of that Colorado low comes and impacts a good chunk of eastern Saskatchewan. We're looking at snow beginning mid day, and then the heavy stuff starting towards the evening and overnight."
"The way things are looking right now, the people in the Estevan area can expect to wake up to about 10-15 centimeters Monday morning. That's not exactly a great day to start the work week," he added.
Strong winds blowing out of the northeast are also forecast to accompany the precipitation, and Shaer said that he expects some pretty bad reductions in visibility on the road.
"That morning commute on Monday is going to be pretty rough, and hopefully people give themselves plenty of time or delay driving until the winds calm down a bit."
