REGINA – Regina is getting hammered with a spring snowstorm that could see as much as 10 cm of snow dropped on the city by Wednesday morning.

Environment Canada says a low pressure system in North Dakota is tracking slowly eastward, bringing a band of heavy snow with it as it moves across Saskatchewan.

Currently the City of Regina has winter maintenance crews out on the road plowing and doing ice control on Category 1 and 2 streets, focusing on high-speed routes like Ring Road and Lewvan Drive.

Regina Police tweeted that in the last 24 hours there have been at least 10 motor vehicle accidents on the streets – but no injuries.

Travel is not recommended on Highway 11 from Regina to Bethune, and winter driving conditions currently exist on most highways around Regina and Moose Jaw.
