Moose Jaw and area residents are digging out this morning following a low-pressure system that brought 10 to 20 cm of snow and a gusty northeast wind overnight.

More snowfall is on the way today as another 2 to 10 cm of snow is expected to fall.

Environment Canada says the highest amounts of snow are expected in the southeast of the province. That area of the province was hit hardest by the low-pressure system with many roads in the Estevan area closed as a blizzard warning continues.

The recent snowfall, coupled with northeasterly winds gusting to 50-60 km/h will continue to affect commutes in town and on the highways as visibility is reduced and snow drifts create hazards. 

At the time of publishing, Highway 1 is closed from Moose Jaw to east of Regina. Several other highways around Moose Jaw are open, but travel is not recommended. 

The snow and blowing snow will continue slowly tapering off from west to east for the remainder of the day.
