Hot on the heels of light snow being reported in Calgary, EC is reporting almost 40cm to have accumulated overnight in parts of the Cypress Hills Park region through southwestern Saskatchewan!

Snowfall warning for
Shaunavon - Maple Creek - Val Marie - Cypress Hills continued

Heavy snow tapering off somewhat overnight. Total accumulations near 40 cm in the Cypress Hills Park.



A disturbance which moved from southern Alberta last night into southern Saskatchewan today has spread precipitation into much of the south, most of which has fallen and will continue to fall in the form of rain.

Over the higher elevations of the Cypress Hills however, the precipitation has fallen mainly as snow. As of 2 PM Cypress Hills Park has reported 30 cm of snow on the ground, with snow continuing to fall. Eastend reported falling snow with a few cm accumulation, while Maple Creek reported snow which changed to rain this afternoon, with little snowfall accumulation. The Cypress Hills Park can expect another 10 cm or so of snow late this afternoon into this evening...With lower elevations seeing only rain or lesser amounts of snow.

Elsewhere, skies are expected to clear somewhat over west-central Saskatchewan. With the cold airmass in place over the province this should result in overnight temperatures dropping below the freezing point giving frost.

Yup! Woke up on Saturday morning to find snow on the rooftops and on the cars in the neighbourhood. Didn't really stick to the ground as the week before was in the mid 20's.

Got some video of the snow: www.albertastormchasing.webs.com
