Environment Canada has issued a blowing snow warning for the Shaunavon - Maple Creek - Val Marie - Cypress Hills forecast region in advance of tonight's storm.

The warning advises of reduced visibilities of less than one kilometer when snow and blowing snow arrives tonight and Saturday morning.

"An Alberta clipper will track from Southern Alberta this evening into North Dakota on Saturday. A band of 5 to 10 centimeters of snow can be expected across much of Southern Saskatchewan tonight and Saturday morning. Strong northerly winds gusting up to 70 kilometers per hour will develop overnight over Southwestern Saskatchewan on the back side of this system. These strong winds combined with the falling snow will create poor visibilities in snow and blowing snow with visibilities less than 1 kilometers at times especially over open areas. Conditions should improve Saturday afternoon as the winds subside and snow tapers off," the Environment Canada warning states.
