UPDATE: All warnings mentioned in this story have ended
A wind warning that was issued for most of southern and central Saskatchewan has ended.
Environment Canada has continued a snowfall and winter storm warning for northern portions of the province.
Wind Warning Ended
Most of southern and central Saskatchewan, including Regina and Saskatoon, was under a wind warning Monday morning.
A cold front tracking across southern Saskatchewan was expected to produce strong gusty winds of up to 90 km/h.
Environment Canada has ended the warning, stating wind speeds are no longer expected to meet the warning criteria.
Parts of northern Saskatchewan are under a snowfall warning, with 20 to 30 centimetres possible.
The snow is expected to taper off Monday evening as a low pressure system tracking through north-central Saskatchewan moves out of the province.
Environment Canada said rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult.
Winter Storm Warning
There is also a winter storm warning for some areas of northern Saskatchewan.
The low pressure system tracking across the province will bring a mixed bag of winter weather to the warning areas.
Snow Monday morning will become mixed with ice pellets or freezing rain.
The precipitation will change entirely to snow as the low pressure system passes through the region, with 15 to 20 cm of snow possible by the evening.
Strong gusty northerly winds will also develop, giving blowing snow in the exposed areas.
Drivers should check the Saskatchewan highway hotline for the latest road conditions.
