Blowing Snow AdvisoryIssued at 15:47 Sunday 04 December 2016
Poor visibility in snow and blowing snow is expected or occurring.
Blowing snow beginning tonight and lasting through Monday across much of southern Saskatchewan.
A low pressure system developing in the southwestern corner of the province will track eastward along the international border tonight. Many areas along and south of the Trans-Canada corridor can expect to see 5 to 10 cm of fresh snow through Monday as the system passes over. In its wake, northwesterly winds of 40 gusting to 60 km/h develop as a cold arctic airmass floods over the province. Visibilities will be reduced in snow and blowing snow beginning this evening in the southwest expanding eastward to the Manitoba border by Monday morning. The winds and blowing snow are expected to last through the day Monday before the wind gradually begins to ease on Tuesday.
Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility.
Blowing snow advisories are issued when winds are expected to create blowing snow giving poor visibility to 800 metres or less for at least 3 hours.
