Saskatchewan is in the middle of a spring snowstorm.

Taking a look at the Highway Hotline locally, as of 10:00 AM all roads around Kindersley were still reporting seasonal. That is obviously subject to change, as a good majority of local highways are currently reporting winter driving conditions with the storm making its way towards the Alberta border.

The West Central Online weather radar is showing light to moderate precipitation continuing to make its way west. Taking a look below, the heavy stuff still could rear its ugly head locally and pass over the majority of the region.

Some are getting it a lot worse than others, as a quick look at the province's highway situation shows road closures and travel not recommended throughout the southeast. Ice covered roads and a heavy snowpack make up the main culprit.

Snow is expected to fall all night long, and tomorrow's forecast is showing a 60 per cent chance of flurries in the morning. Plan your travel accordingly.
