Environment Canada has ended a winter storm warning in the Shaunavon - Maple Creek - Val Marie - Cypress Hills forecast area, removing the final weather advisory in the Southwest. The region had been placed under a series of snowfall warnings, winter storm warnings and blizzard warnings over the past 36 hours.
At 8 a.m. this morning, a line of snow and blowing snow continued south of a line from Yorkton through Regina and Moose Jaw through to the Cypress Hills. Snow has moved out of the Leader and Swift Current regions so the winter storm warning has been ended for the Leader - Gull Lake plus the Swift Current - Herbert - Cabri - Kyle - Lucky Lake forecast areas early this morning.
Snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 centimeters has fallen across the South during this recent heavy snow.
While there are no confirmed totals issued by Environment Canada for Saskatchewan, a special weather statement issued in Alberta pointed out the Hidden Valley ski area received 20 centimeters of snow.
Environment Canada points out a winter storm warning is issued when either 25 centimeters or more of snow is expected within 24 hours, or when 10 centimeters of snow is expected along with extensive blowing snow or some other weather warning type.
