==DISCUSSION==  
 
HAZARDOUS WINTER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED.  
 
AS OF 9:50 PM A SWATH OF APPROXIMATELY 10 CM OF FRESH SNOW HAS  
FALLEN IN EXTREME SOUTHERN SASKATCHEWAN, ROUGHLY FROM THE CYPRESS  
HILLS EASTWARD TO THE ASSINIBOIA REGION. THE SNOW IS NOW BEGINNING  
TO PUSH TO THE NORTHEAST, AND SHOULD AFFECT THE REGINA AREA IN THE  
NEXT HOUR OR SO.  
 
THE SNOW WILL CONTINUE PUSHING TO THE EAST-NORTHEAST THROUGHOUT THE  
REMAINDER OF THE NIGHT, WITH WIDESPREAD ACCUMULATIONS OF 10-15 CM  
THROUGH MUCH OF THE WARNING AREA BY MONDAY MORNING AND UP TO 20 CM  
EXPECTED OVER THE CYPRESS HILLS.  
 
AS THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO DEVELOP, IT WILL TAP MUCH COLDER AIR TO  
THE NORTHWEST, WITH THE RESULT THAT STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS WILL  
SPREAD ACROSS SOUTHERN SASKATCHEWAN FROM WEST TO EAST OVERNIGHT  
THROUGH MONDAY MORNING. GUSTS TO 60 KM/H WILL RESULT IN NEAR-ZERO  
VISIBILITY AT TIME IN SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW. THE STRONG WINDS AND  
BLOWING SNOW ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE DAY MONDAY,  
WITH TEMPERATURES EXPECTED TO FALL THROUGHOUT THE DAY AS ARCTIC ARE  
FLOODS ACROSS THE PROVINCE.  
 
THE HEAVIEST SNOW WILL BE DONE BY TUESDAY MORNING, ALTHOUGH  
PERSISTENT LIGHT SNOW ACCOMPANIED BY GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS WILL  
CONTINUE.  
 
CONSIDER POSTPONING NON-ESSENTIAL TRAVEL UNTIL CONDITIONS IMPROVE.  
RAPIDLY ACCUMULATING SNOW COULD MAKE TRAVEL DIFFICULT OVER SOME  
LOCATIONS. VISIBILITY MAY BE SUDDENLY REDUCED AT TIMES IN HEAVY  
SNOW.  
 
PLEASE CONTINUE TO MONITOR ALERTS AND FORECASTS ISSUED BY  
ENVIRONMENT CANADA. TO REPORT SEVERE WEATHER, SEND AN EMAIL TO  
EC.STORM.EC(AT)CANADA.CA OR TWEET REPORTS TO (HASH)SKSTORM.
