Get ready for a windy, rainy day in the southeast.
"There's a system that's tracking across Saskatchewan," explained Shannon Moodie, with Environment Canada, "that's brought significant snowfall to northcentral Saskatchewan overnight and into today. It's also pulling down some air."
"So what Estevan is going to see is some rain and then temperatures are going to start falling this afternoon and that rain is going to transition into snow. Along with that, today they're going to have northwesterly winds of about 30 gusting to 50. Then tonight and into Tuesday, those winds will pick up to be 40 gusting to 60. With that snow falling, there will likely be some local blowing in open areas especially."
She expects the snow to taper off tomorrow afternoon with not a lot accumulation. We can expect around 2 cm of snow tonight with another 2 cm tomorrow.
Those heading on the highways may want to check with the Highway Hotline before heading out.
"Winds are going to be gusty and with the snow falling, there will likely be pockets of reduced visibility and blowing snow."
Once this system passes, we should see sunny skies, but don't expect the temperatures to warm up.
"As that low tracks to the east, there is a high-pressure ridge that is building in behind it. With that cold air that has been pulled down with that low and then the clear skies and the high pressure, it's definitely going to stay chilly for the week."
