It’s not a big storm but it is packing a punch.
Snow, freezing drizzle and winds are making the roads a challenge in much of central and northern Saskatchewan today. The storm rolling in from the Alberta foothills is hitting the Prince Albert, Meadow Lake and La Ronge areas particularly hard.
“What’s really concerning is the winds,” David Phillips, senior climatologist with Environment Canada said. “The day started off with good visibility but then things changed from about 6 a.m. when high winds mixed with the snow and rapidly brought the visibility down.”
