A significant blizzard struck Saskatchewan over the last couple of days, bringing over 30 centimetres of snow to many locations, including Saskatoon. The storm also brought wind gusts over 80 km/h to Assiniboia, and white out conditions for a wide swath of the province.
In some cases, roads were impassible due to the blizzard, with many storm spotters showing the significant snowfalls observed around the province, and white out conditions in some cases.
