Thunder Bay – Weather – We are continuing to track a low-pressure system which has Winter Storm Warnings and Weather Advisories in effect for Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
The storm system could be tracking further north as it comes across the prairies.
Alberta and Saskatchewan are getting the brunt of the system. Edmonton has a Winter Storm Warning with Environment Canada calling for heavy snowfall for parts of Alberta Monday through Tuesday. Total snowfall amounts between 10 and 20 cm are expected. Snow will begin in western Alberta on Monday morning and spread eastward through the day, reaching regions in Central Alberta by the early afternoon.
For Saskatchewan, the weather is calling for a strong storm system that will affect southern and central Saskatchewan Monday night and Tuesday. The area southwest of the Yellowhead will see strong winds through the day, with peak gusts in excess of 90 km/h expected. Near the Yellowhead itself, a band of freezing rain is likely to develop, making travel slippery for a few hours throughout the day.
Manitoba is expecting heavy weather too with weather advisories out in the Northern parts of Manitoba.
NetNewsLedger will be watching this system and keeping you up-to-date. Hopefully the storm shifts to the north faster than the tracking models.
