Weather warnings in southern Saskatchewan
Southern Saskatchewan was under weather warnings for most of the weekend.
On Saturday, a snowfall warning was issued by Environment Canada for the southwest corner of the province.
Mark Geryland, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, explained that a low pressure system from Utah was bringing about an inch of rain to most of southern Saskatchewan.
But elevated areas, like the Cypress Hills, will see the snow.
“Rain will change into snow Sunday morning and will continue through the day on Sunday, Sunday night, before tapering off Monday morning.”
Geryland said the total snowfall over Cypress Hills would be around 20-30 centimeters, or about a foot.
Sunday morning, Environment Canada also issued a rainfall warning for the Assiniboia and Gravelbourg areas.
Rob Paola, also a meteorologist with Environment Canada, said they predicted those areas would see up to 50 millimetres, or two inches of rain.
Paola said Regina, Moose Jaw, Estevan, Broadview and Yorkton also have the potential of seeing large amounts of rain.
There were also frost warnings out in Saskatchewan Saturday night. Prince Albert, Spriritwood, the Battlefords and Maidstone were all under that warning.
The frost warning and rainfall warning both ended by early evening Sunday, but the snowfall warning for the southwest continued into Monday.
