Environment Canada has ended the special weather statement for southeast Saskatchewan, and replaced it with a winter storm watch.
According to Environment Canada, strong winds and blowing snow are expected to develop Wednesday afternoon.
A strong low-pressure system will track across Saskatchewan Wednesday. Strong west to northwest winds, with gusts of 90-110 kilometres per hour, will develop Wednesday afternoon.
These strong winds will subside to below 90 km/h Thursday morning, but will remain blustery into Thursday night.
Snow, at times heavy, will track into the area Wednesday evening, with the potential for local pockets of 5-10 centimetres by Thursday morning. The heavy snowfall will taper off Thursday morning, but some flurries will linger into Thursday night.
The strong winds and heavy snow will combine to create blowing snow. Blowing snow will begin Wednesday evening and persist into Thursday night. Visibilities may be reduced to near zero at times.
This system will be exiting the province Friday morning.
These watches may be upgraded to warnings as this system develops.
The Mercury will have more details as they become available.
