SASKATOON – Saskatoon is in for another shot of sloppy weather this weekend.

After a mixture of light snow and drizzle overnight into Saturday morning combined with fog developing across central Saskatchewan, roads will be in poor travel condition to start off the weekend.

Saturday will begin with scattered precipitation and some glimpses of sunshine even possible during the day, however come nightfall, completely overcast conditions set in with moderate to heavy rain beginning.

Another area of low pressure is moving into the province, similar to the system that came through earlier in the week, packed with mixed precipitation and strong wind gusts upwards of 60 km/h.

Heavy rain is expected to dominate most of the day on Sunday, which may flip over to snow overnight into Monday.

Models are hinting that Saskatonians may wake up to a winter wonderland Monday morning with a few centimeters of heavy, wet snow on the ground as flurries continue to fall into the day.

Temperatures will hover just above the freezing mark through the majority of the weekend.

While April may have left a bitter taste in people’s mouths, significant changes in the weather pattern are expected for the beginning of May with double digit temperatures and sunshine in the forecast.

So in Saskatoon, it may very well be true this year that April showers (and flurries) may eventually bring some May flowers after all.
