Update: Alberta clipper warnings over, more snow moving in

 Be sure to check the Highway Hotline before heading anywhere.
There is a snowfall warning for the southwest part of Saskatchewan.

SASKATCHEWAN — The weekend's Alberta Clipper has moved east, but there's a new set of warnings out — this time for heavy snow.

The warnings are for the Kindersley - Rosetown - Biggar - Wilkie - Macklin area, the Leader - Gull Lake area, the Outlook - Watrous - Hanley - Imperial - Dinsmore area, the Shaunavon - Maple Creek - Val Marie - Cypress Hills area and the Swift Current - Herbert - Cabri - Kyle - Lucky Lake area.

Environment Canada says snow, at times heavy, will begin this morning, with 10 to 15 cm of snow expected by Tuesday morning.

Take caution travelling as visibility will be reduced at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

The snow will gradually taper off overnight.

Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.

Environment Canada had said this weekend's Alberta clipper was expected to be followed by a second system early this week, bringing another shot of accumulating snowfall to parts of Saskatchewan
