In a winter that has seen little to no snowfall in south east Saskatchewan, it may be time to brace yourself for a blast of the white stuff.
Although Environment Canada's John Paul Cragg is reluctant to put a exact number on how much snow the corner of the province will receive, he says it could end up being quite significant.
"There's two particular storms that could hit the south east corner of the province," Cragg shared. "The first storm is moving in on Saturday, there's still some variability as to how much snow the corner of the province will get. We're looking at between 5-10 cm of snow begging on Friday night into Saturday."
Because Saturday's potential dumping of snow might not be enough for mother nature, a more significant system has the chance to hit the area starting on Sunday.
"There's another system that could be moving up from the states on Sunday evening into Monday morning and this storm is a bit more of a worry. With this one, there's still a lot of uncertainty as to how it will move and what parts of Saskatchewan or Manitoba it will take place. Right now the models are shifting the area of strong snow into south east Saskatchewan."
"It's possible that Estevan could get upwards of 25 cm of snow, and it's important to keep track of the forecast right now with a lot of uncertainty of where it will hit the hardest."
Cragg mentioned that should the second system hit Estevan, it could wipe out precipitation totals of what the area has seen during the entire winter.
"Estevan didn't see much snow between December and February. It's possible with these storms you could see double of what you've seen over the winter months. As we move further into the weekend, we'll have a better sense of whether or not how much snow the south east can expect," Cragg concluded.
