Precipitation and strong northerly wind could persist over much of southern Saskatchewan Monday evening and through Wednesday.

Many areas are expected to see 25 to 50 millimetres of rain by the time the system pulls out of the province on Wednesday. Some areas, mainly in the southwest, may get 50 to 75 mm over a 36 to 48 hour period.

Environment Canada said snow is likely, with 10 to 15 centimetres possible at higher elevations in Cypress Hills on Tuesday.

Central areas of Saskatchewan and along the Alberta border in the southwest could see rain change over to snow by Wednesday morning as colder air moves in from the north.

No significant snowfall accumulations are expected and snow should melt on contact with the still-warm ground.

The federal agency said forecasted amounts may change.
