“Really disorderly conditions are expected across much of the southeastern part of the province over the next 48 to 72 hours,” said meteorologist Brian Proctor. “It’s going to be quite an interesting weather scenario, and the impact could be quite significant.”

The major winter storm is expected to bring heavy snow with total accumulations of 25 to 50 cm to parts of southeastern Saskatchewan on Saturday. Environment Canada has warned of wind gusts to 80 km/h likely to occur Saturday afternoon and evening, giving very poor visibility in the blowing snow. The weather agency also advised pedestrians and motorists to exercise caution in slippery conditions.

The mayor of Estevan said contractors dug the town over the Easter weekend “but are preparing for another snow removal.”

“We have good staff…we’ve been working day shifts all week to catch up,” Mayor Roy Ludwig said. “Most of it has been digging under all the snow…so we’re in pretty good shape right now. So we are ready.

Environment Canada strongly urges area residents to check the roadside assistance line before traveling and to be prepared for possible power outages.
