A low pressure trough spread snow into west-central Saskatchewan during the night. As of 8 a.m. CST Saskatoon has received 10 cm of snow, with lesser amounts reported thus far in other areas.
The area of snow is now gradually moving northward and eastward today, lifting north of the Yellowhead Highway. Areas to the south will see little or no snow today.
The trough will swing back through southern Saskatchewan tonight and Saturday morning with a few more centimetres accompanying it. North winds behind the trough will push temperatures back to normal or below normal values.
A wide range of snowfall totals from this system are still likely, with areas from the Yellowhead and north looking at 24 hour totals in the 10 to 20 cm range, while southern areas escape with less than 5 cm.
Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
