Forecast: Fair today; more rain, snow possible tonight and Wednesday

Both Saskatoon and Regina can expect up to five centimetres - about an inch or two - of snow to fall by Tuesday evening. Temperatures to start Tuesday were in the mid to upper 20s. Snow accumulation will be light with a coating possible on some of the grass and cars. West winds 15 to 25 miles per hour. Enbridge made a decision to shut down the twin pipelines until weather conditions improve in the Straits of Mackinac, which links Lake Huron and Lake Michigan, Duffy said. As pieces of energy rotate through this upper-level trough, the combination of them with surface low pressure across Ontario Canada and Great Lakes moisture will help to spark scattered rain and even snow showers, especially later this afternoon. It will be blustery with snow showers possible. Cloud cover will be more persistent unfortunately, which along with a breezy west northwesterly wind, will keep our highs stuck in the 30s again today.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy and much colder with a 50 percent chance for snow in the morning then isolated showers in the afternoon.

In the meantime, the Doppler radar shows a line of rain and rain mixing with snow out in western Montana. These fair skies will be short lived as a fast moving clipper low pressure system approaches from the Midwest and slides across the region Wednesday night into Thursday.

Drier weather will move into the area for Wednesday and Thursday.

Friday - Partly sunny, with a high near 48. Partly sunny, with a high near 52. Have a great and safe rest of the week!
