Slippery roads will have to be included in your driving plans over the next day or two. A weather system plying it's way through the southeast is bringing snow, and the possibility of freezing rain. Combined, it's a deadly concoction bound to make travel difficult.

"It's a fairly complicated system that's kind of coming in two waves. The first wave will be moving through this morning, there's a band of snow and freezing rain that is moving through the province. We've already seen some freezing rain in northwestern sections of the Grain Belt, and now it's moving towards the southeast, so anybody travelling out there should be aware," says Terri Laing, a Regional Meteorologist with Environment Canada. 

"The snow and freezing rain is moving into the southeastern parts of the province this morning...upwards of 5 centimeters of snow is possible in the Estevan area through the day."

She adds that you should also expect gusty winds out of the southeast. While it all should ease off over Tuesday evening, the second wave replaces it Wednesday afternoon bringing plunging temperatures and more wind, with less snow.

There's been no solid bands of freezing rain identified, simply scattered reports, thus at this point it remains only a risk for southeastern residents.
