A developing low-pressure system in Montana will spread snow into southern Saskatchewan this weekend.  

The snow is forecast to begin in southwestern Saskatchewan on Friday evening, move across southern Saskatchewan into southwestern Manitoba Friday night, and then push across southern Manitoba Saturday into Saturday evening. 

Environment Canada Meteorologist, Terri Lang, says that the heaviest amounts of snow will probably come during the overnight period on Friday, into early morning Saturday. 

“The heaviest amounts forecast to fall looks like south of the TransCanada highway, with upwards of 20 to 25 centimeters possible. Heavier amounts will probably be over the higher terrain, closer to the U.S border, just with the way the winds are blowing.” 

Moose Jaw is expected to see about 15 to 20 centimeters of snow, within and around the city. 

“A big issue here will be the winds that are going to come with this weather system, combined with the falling snow,” adds Lang. “So, we’re expecting to see lots of snow and blowing snow developing Friday evening, in the overnight period Friday, into Saturday.
