Residents in the southeast should be prepared to wake up to some snow on the ground. 

"We have a low pressure system that has developed in the Yukon," explained Regional Meteorologist, Terri Laing, with Environment Canada, "and is now moving through northern Alberta and it's going to slip into Saskatchewan later today and out into North Dakota it looks like overnight and into tomorrow morning."

"With that, it's bringing some snow with it. The bulk of the snow will probably fall toward the Lloydminster, North Battleford area but in it's path, it looks like there will be some snow across most of southern Saskatchewan."

"In the Estevan area, it looks like a couple centimeters worth before the system exits probably tomorrow morning."

She adds that the snow will likely start this evening and into the overnight period and lingering into the morning and potentially into the afternoon. 

"The way that the temperatures are, sometimes it initially falls, if the temperature is above zero, we might lose some of it to melting as it hits the pavement but I think when people wake up in the morning, they will wake up to some whiteness so they shouldn't be surprised about that."

She advised to have your winter items ready to go like snow shovels and snow melt.

"And also, we ask people to be prepared if they're heading out on the roads especially because there are heavier amounts expected elsewhere and we do have some winds expected with it, so always be prepared when you go out on the road. have your emergency kit ready and also check the Highway Hotline before you head out so you know what your'e driving into."

Laing shared that after the system moves through, expect to see some cold temperatures. 

"In behind that as well, we are going to see some dropping temperatures so people should be prepared for that as well. Which means it won't melt as and it it does start melting, and we get the colder temperatures, it makes for some icy conditions. We're going to see a lot of below freezing temperatures over the next week or so. 

"The first part of November is looking rather cold at least for the first ten days or so. It looks like we might have another system moving through on the weekend as well so people should be prepared for that also."
