A Sunday morning dusting of wet snow, followed by intermittent rains, are not the ideal spring conditions Southwest residents are hoping for.

Environment Canada continues to call for a mixture of wet snow and periods of rain into Monday and Tuesday, as a prolonged cool start to the spring will not change until May.

Earlier today Environment Canada reported a strong storm system over the Central United States was responsible for the widespread rainfall across Southern Saskatchewan today. While most areas received between five and 15 millimetres of rain, Some locally heavier bands of rain occurred, with 20 to 30 millimetres of rain recorded today from Rockglen through Gravelbourg into the Chaplin area.

Swift Current's overnight forecast is calling for periods of rain mixed with wet snow, followed by Monday's forecast with rain mixed with wet snow possible in the morning and evening hours and a daytime high of only +4 Celsius.
