An upper air disturbance will continue to bring heavy snow to parts of central and east central Saskatchewan tonight. Snowfall totals will be around 10 cm by mid Sunday morning. There will likely be periods of very low visibility in the heavy snow and local blowing snow.

The snow will begin to taper off overnight, beginning over southwestern regions, then northeastern regions Sunday morning.

A second push of extreme winter weather is expected for parts of southern Saskatchewan beginning late Sunday and persisting through Monday. Travellers should be aware that this weather system will affect a large portion of the Canadian Prairies.
