Special weather statement for YXE


Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Saskatoon, warning of strong winds starting Tuesday. Freezing rain is likely too. Saskatoon can expect winds in excess of 90 kilometers per hour.


Environment Canada:


A strong storm system will affect southern and central Saskatchewan on 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. Areas north of the Yellowhead are expected to see heavy snowfall. Current indications are that anywhere between 10 and 30 cm of snow may fall, especially in a line from Lloydminster and Meadow Lake to The Pas, Manitoba. There is some uncertainty with regard to timing and exact location of this system, but it appears likely that this system will adversely affect much of Saskatchewan on Tuesday.
