The Alberta Clipper that Environment Canada warned of yesterday is still going strong.
Yesterday, winds got upwards of 110 km/h. This prompted the City of Weyburn to close the landfill for part of the day. City and GFL crews on refuse collection also took the extra step of walking people's recycling and garbage bins back into their yard after pick up so the bins didn't fly away.
Snow started coming down later in the afternoon, around 5:00. At that point, the storm had already hit Moose Jaw and Regina, and highways around the southeast part of the province began to close. As of 6:30 this morning, many highways are still closed or showing travel not recommended.
As Weyburnites awake this morning, they will come across many drifts, scattered branches, and the occasional roof shingle.
The wind is expected to continue gusting between 60 and 90 km/h throughout the day, eventually settling down tomorrow.
Crews are already out working on cleaning off the roads but residents are encouraged to take extra care when they leave their house this morning. Many Weyburn streets have snowdrifts on them and there may be occasional debris and yard items.
We'll do our best to keep you up to date on the changing weather throughout the day.
