Spring has sprung, but Mother Nature is ignoring the calendar.
An Alberta Clipper tracking across the province today will keep parts of Saskatchewan looking wintery for the next couple of days.
Environment Canada is forecasting 5 to 10 centimeters of snow this afternoon and tonight for Saskatoon. Lloydminster and Kindersley regions could get double the accumulation, said the weather office.
“It seems like it’s going to be a pretty narrow corridor of snow. Reaching Kindersley this afternoon then along that south-east diagonal line toward the Moosomin area,” meteorologist Justin Shaer said.
Shear says we shouldn’t be surprised, adding it’s not out of the ordinary to get this much snow this late in the winter.
“It’s still March on the Prairies, so there’s a lot of cold air to deal with.”
The snow could stick around for a couple of days. According to the forecast, Saskatoon doesn’t get back to plus temperatures until Thursday with a high of 1 C.
