Saskatoon was blanketed with snow overnight Thursday and into Friday morning.
Environment Canada meteorologist Mark Melsness said between 5 and 10 centimetres of snow fell on the Bridge City.
He said the snow was expected to taper off by mid-morning, with another 2 to 4 centimetres of snow expected Friday night.
“By (Saturday) morning, it should be pretty much done,” he said.
A snowfall warning for the City of Saskatoon was cancelled around 5:20 a.m. Friday. However, warnings remained in effect for the area outside the city limits, as well as a number of other parts of western and central Saskatchewan.
Melness said a low-pressure system was expected to move north and east through the day, depositing between 5 and 10 cm of snow in its wake, with areas north of Highway 16 expected to be hit the hardest.
He said Saskatoon could likely expect more snow early next week, followed by a blast of cold temperatures starting Wednesday.
“It looks like we’re into the deep freeze after that, so temperatures well down into the minus 20’s by the latter part of next week,” he said.
The overnight snowfall leading into Friday morning was the first significant snowfall seen in Saskatoon in just over a month-and-a-half.
