An Alberta clipper will bring rapidly changing weather conditions with strong winds, rain changing to snow and quickly falling temperatures to much of southern Saskatchewan on Saturday afternoon through Sunday.
Hazardous travel conditions are forecast from Saturday afternoon into Sunday due to significantly reduced visibility in falling and blowing snow. Icy conditions will also develop as temperatures drop rapidly, causing wet surfaces to freeze by Sunday morning.
The weather will improve through the day on Sunday as winds ease and snow gradually tapers off. However, surface conditions will likely remain hazardous as temperatures will continue to plummet through the day on Sunday.
This system is quickly followed by a second system early next week, which will bring another shot of accumulating snowfall to parts of Saskatchewan.
