The people of Saskatchewan, including here in Weyburn, are continuing to dig out after a snowstorm over the weekend. Weyburn received around 20 centimetres of snow, and the winds created drifts that piled up even higher.  

As the storm has moved off to the east, many are looking at the forecasts to see if there is anything else that could be coming to the southeast, and Eric Dykes, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada, explained there is a good chance we may see more snow tomorrow.  

“There is a little bit more coming, in fact, but not nearly as much as what we saw with this system,” Dykes said. “Another system, much weaker in nature, is going to be crossing through Tuesday into Wednesday into the southeast from the United States, and perhaps we could see a centimetre or who of snow with that system coming through during that time period.” 

Behind the system, there will be a brief warmup for Weyburn. The normal temperatures for this time of year are around -2° during the day. The forecast is calling for temperatures in that range to arrive on the weekend.  

Until the warmer temperatures arrive and start to melt the snow, there will be many people out with shovels and snowblowers looking to clear off sidewalks, driveways and more. For those who are heading out to get some of the shovelling done, Dykes has a few words of advice.  

“Take your time when shovelling it, of course, because there is going to be a lot of snow out there,” he cautioned. “You don’t want to hurt yourself, you don’t want to strain yourself. If you can get help if necessary to help clear the snow for you, by all means, do so, but do take care and take it easy out there.”
