With snow and high winds in the forecast, Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued a blowing snow advisory for the City of Moose Jaw and over a dozen rural municipalities.
Northwesterly winds gusting up to 70 km/h will develop in southwestern Saskatchewan this evening as a low-pressure system tracks through the province. These winds combined with fresh falling snow will produce reduced visibility in blowing snow tonight into Monday.
Visibilities will improve Monday afternoon as winds and snow gradually diminish throughout the day.
Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
Blowing snow advisories are issued when winds are expected to create blowing snow giving poor visibility to 800 metres or less for at least 3 hours.
