Saskatchewan weather outlook: unsettled weather behind the blizzard

WATCH ABOVE: A risk of more precipitation ahead in Saskatoon's and Regina's weather forecast.

A A

Blizzard conditions slide out of Saskatchewan with a risk of precipitation in areas that missed out over the weekend.

Spring snowstorm

Southern Saskatchewan was hit hard by a late-April snowstorm with some areas receiving almost half a metre of snow.

Forty-five centimetres of snow fell in the Eastend area with wind gusts as high as 87 km/h, reducing visibility to near zero in some areas.

As the precipitation-packed low-pressure system swept through the province it forced the closure of the Trans-Canada Highway on Sunday before the storm began to move off to the southeast late in the day.

Nearly half a metre of snow fell in parts of southwest Saskatchewan during the final weekend of April.
