The City of Saskatoon warned drivers Tuesday to be prepared for freezing rain and snow on their commute home.
With Environment Canada warning of a weather system expected to bring precipitation to Central Saskatchewan throughout the day, officials with the city warned drivers that while crews would be out in force on high-traffic roads like Circle Drive, visibility and road conditions could deteriorate.
Drivers were asked to slow down and give themselves extra time and to watch for the flashing blue and amber lights on snow removal machinery they might encounter while driving.
By early Tuesday afternoon, callers and texters told 650 CKOM that they were seeing snow and freezing rain on the highways around Saskatoon.
Saskatchewan RCMP reported around 1 p.m. that a semi truck and trailer jacknifed on Highway 11, causing the closure of the northbound lanes just outside of Dundurn. The roadway was re-opened to traffic by late Tuesday afternoon.
