Blowing snow is adding to a few different complications with the weather Wednesday morning. Anyone travelling will want to make a solid plan with highways looking highly questionable to start the day.
Winter driving conditions have been noticed all morning around the region, with poor visibility mixed into spots as well. Tuesday's fog advisory did carry into early Wednesday, reading that poor visibility in areas of dense fog will improve by the afternoon.
Not only is the fog and snow making for poor sightlines, the roads themselves could get to be an issue. Continued snowpack will affect things, but the risk of freezing rain is causing for the possibility of icy roads into Wednesday afternoon.
Snow is headed for southern SK the next couple of days! Heavy wet snow starts tonight and continues until Thursday evening. #SKstorm #SKwx— ECCC Weather Saskatchewan (@ECCCWeatherSK) February 6, 2024
May get messy, so check @SKGovHwyHotline before heading on the roads!
