Friday, June 6, 2014, 7:53 PM - If you're a gardener, you might want to protect your plants Friday evening. It's feeling like winter in all three Prairie provinces with frost and additional snow potential this weekend.

ALBERTA FROST

Frost warnings and advisories are in effect for portions of Alberta, starting at Whitecourt and spanning south.

While Calgary isn't included in the area, the city could see slightly below-seasonal temperatures on Saturday.

"Some plants may be damaged or even destroyed by frost," Environment Canada warns in a statement.

"Take preventative measures to protect frost-sensitive plants and trees."

Frost potential remains through night into Saturday morning.

SNOW IN JUNE?

Earlier this week residents in B.C. and Alberta expressed dismay when snow started falling in northern communities.

Further east, that trend has continued.

A low pressure centre over Manitoba prompted snowfall warnings in northern portions of Saskatchewan and Manitoba on Friday.

Manitoba could see additional snow accumulate Friday night, with up to 15 cm falling the Tadoule Lake region.
