A storm system south of the border is leading to some changing weather conditions here in the southeast.

An intense Colorado low is passing through the midwest and is affecting North Dakota. The system, being called a bomb cyclone, or bombogenesis, is bringing with it high winds, and a lot of snow. Extreme weather warnings have been issued in a number of U.S. states ahead of the storm.

Here in Saskatchewan, the system is responsible for bringing the cloud cover over the southeast corner of the province and providing high winds. While the winds are coming from the north, Terri Lang, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada explained we won’t be plunged back into a deep freeze, with forecasts calling for temperatures near normal.

“Luckily we’re not getting those really Arctic temperatures again, because the polar vortex itself has pulled well off back into the Arctic where it belongs, and so we’re still getting the benefit of those temperatures,” Lang said.

The system itself isn’t expected to bring any precipitation to the region either.

“Because the temperatures have been around zero, I don’t think we’re going to have an issue with blowing snow across southern Saskatchewan, but as you go south, conditions are going to quickly worsen,” Lang added.

With upwards of a foot of snow, or more, available in some parts of North Dakota, Lang is also cautioning for those who want to head to the Dakotas to reconsider travel into the region.
