The west central region is set to receive some snow beginning this morning, and it should last until early Thursday morning. Environment and Climate Change Canada meteorologist Brian Luzny explains what is in store for the next couple of days. 

“Starting Tuesday morning, snow is going to move into the area, mostly the northern Grainbelt is going to be the largest area affected by the most snow. Kindersley itself may only see two to four centimetres total, but northern parts of your region could see totals by Thursday morning of 10 to 12 centimetres,” Luzny said. 

There is another system forecasted for Saskatchewan heading into the weekend, but the west central region is not expected to be affected by it, and temperatures are actually expected to rise on Saturday and Sunday in the Kindersley area according to Luzny. 

“For Kindersley ending kind of Wednesday evening, the snow and then highs just below seasonal. Somewhere in the 5-to-10-degree range as highs and then by the weekend you're getting above 10 degrees again,” Luzny added.  

Roadways are expected to become slippery due to overnight lows being below freezing, and Luzny says to make sure to check the Highway Hotline before travelling in the early hours of tomorrow and Thursday. 

The average temperatures for this time of year are a high of 13 degrees and a low of zero degrees.
