As a blizzard warning is in effect for Weyburn and the rest of southeastern Saskatchewan, Environment Canada says to stock up on needed supplies and medications now, and to not travel. 

"This storm has the potential to be the worst blizzard in decades," read the statement from the government agency. "Power outages are likely, rural areas in particular should be prepared for extended outages."

The snow will begin early Tuesday evening near the U.S border, then push northwards throughout the night. The blizzard is expected to begin Tuesday evening and last until Friday morning. 

Environment Canada predicts widespread snowfall accumulations of 30-50 cm, accompanied by northerly winds gusting 70-90 km/h causing zero visibility at times, and blowing snow.

City of Weyburn crews were focusing on spring cleaning, but are shifting back to a winter mindset.
