Environment Canada has upgraded the winter storm watch for Weyburn and the surrounding area to a winter storm warning.  

The system, which is moving into the province from Montana, will bring heavy snow to the southwest part of Saskatchewan Saturday morning, and move east. There will be high winds, gusting upwards of 70 kilometres an hour, with heavy and blowing snow that is expected to greatly reduce visibility.

The system will move into the rest of the province and will cover all of southern Saskatchewan by Sunday morning. The near-blizzard conditions are expected to linger around into Monday.

The system is expected to bring upwards of 40 centimetres of snow to some parts of southern Saskatchewan. The storm has the potential to bring Weyburn the most snowfall seen since April 19, 2023, when over 60 centimetres fell in a 24-hour period. 

Environment Canada is advising surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may be difficult to navigate as the snow starts to accumulate. With the snow and the reduced visibility, they are suggesting people consider non-essential travel.
