Just in time for the holiday season, Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Estevan and most of south Saskatchewan.
With the first official day of winter landing on Thursday, the snowfall couldn't be coming in a more timely fashion.
"Anywhere from 5-10 cm close to the international boundary as far as snowfall goes," said Meteorologist Mike Russo. "We are expecting the snow to get into the Cypress Hills area on Tuesday afternoon, and it will start spreading eastward. As far as Estevan is concerned, the snow should start late over night or early Wednesday morning."
"All regions near the international boundary and into Saskatchewan are included in this warning, so if you are traveling you need to be aware of that," Russo concluded.
Once the snow clears out, a cold arctic ridge is expected to slide down into southern Saskatchewan, which will create some frigid temperatures before Christmas and into the new year.
