A low-pressure system will track across parts of Saskatchewan on Friday, bringing accumulating snow to areas south of a line from roughly Kindersley to Oxbow.
Environment Canada issued the special weather statement Thursday afternoon.
The snow will move into western regions in the morning, central areas in the afternoon, and eastern areas in the evening. In some places the precipitation may initially be mixed with rain, but for the most part it will fall as snow – except in the southwest corner of the province where more of a mixture is expected.
Total snowfall accumulations will be in the five to 10 centimetre range in some areas, with current indications that the highest amounts will fall from about Leader through Assiniboia.
The situation will be monitored closely, and warnings may be required if the system comes in stronger than expected.
Please be aware that roads may become slippery along with reduced visibility at times.
The Mercury will have updates as they become available.
