REGINA – Regina is getting one more taste of winter as snow hammers the Queen City Monday morning.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for most of southeastern Saskatchewan.
Rain that started falling on Sunday night has turned into snow Monday morning, with some areas reporting as much as 5 cm of snow accumulating.
This is a slow moving weather system that could affect our area for the next 12-24 hours, but the snow is expected to change to rain by later this afternoon.
The snow is also causing some headaches on Saskatchewan highways. Callers into the Global Newsroom are saying that Highway 11 and Highway 1 are snow covered and slippery.
