One year to the day from one of the most severe March blizzards in Estevan's history...Old Man Winter is trying to create a repeat performance.

Blizzard conditions arrived in Estevan and southeast Saskatchewan on Sunday evening, bringing with it near-zero visibility on the highways and slippery conditions on city streets and sidewalks.

Monday morning didn't allow much time for snow removal crews to get caught up and for the next 24 hours, it will be an uphill battle to keep the streets driveable in Estevan.

"We had city crews out with graders and loaders clearing 'Priority 1' streets," states Norm Mack, Roads & Drainage Manager in Estevan. "Overnight it was more rain than snow, but that's changing now."

"We're going to get a good amount of snow on Monday, and you'll see some of our streets drift in and get heavy at times."

Stormy weather is expected to continue all day on Monday, overnight, and into the majority of Tuesday.

"If you don't have to go out on the roads and you can stay at home, we're advising to just stay home until the storm passes to make it easier on everybody," adds Mack.
