Border City to see mounds of snow this weekend

Lloydminster residents will get a glimpse at a winter wonderland this weekend.

Blaine Lowry, Meteorologist with Environment Canada, mentioned there will be a strong low pressure system moving up from the Northern plains of the U.S. starting Saturday.

By the end of Sunday, Lloydminster could see anywhere from five to 15 centimetres of snow.

All three prairie provinces will see white, however, places such as North Battleford and Saskatoon are looking to get around 30 to 40 centimetres.

“Particularly if people are thinking of heading farther east into Saskatchewan, the further east you go, the more snow that will fall and the stronger the winds will be,” said Lowry.

There will also be northerly wind gusts coming in at around 50 to 70 km/h.

Lowry stated this is not the last of fall for the Border City, but the end is near.

“It’s not like we’re going into a full on long lasting deep freeze quite yet, but there’s no indication of the warmer temperatures that we’ve had so far this week.”
