It looks like most of the snow Saskatchewan was supposed to get has already passed.

Environment Canada has lifted the snowfall warnings that were in place for Saskatoon and Regina.

Meteorologist Shannon Moodie said an Alberta Clipper came through the province overnight which brought in some snow.

“(We’ll) just get a couple more centimeters before that moves out, we’re not expecting it to last for to to much longer,” She said.

According to Moodie, the Regina airport reported 11cm had fallen by Sunday morning.

She said snow is not the only thing to be mindful of with this storm.

“There is some gusty winds as well so, there are some places that are reporting blowing snow that is reducing visibility,” Moodie said.

She added that with this system we should expect some colder air.

“We will see temperatures drop but with extreme cold we won’t be seeing it in the near term but it is winter so, we will definitely see it again,” Moodie said.

Moodie is reminding people who are heading out Sunday for Christmas to be mindful of road conditions and to take your time while driving.

“Things will be improving later today but definitely keep an eye on local forecasts and if any bulletins have been issued or ended,” she said.

As of Sunday morning, Snowfall warnings are still issued for Weyburn, Estevan and Yorkton while Moose Jaw is still under a Blowing Snow Advisory.

Meanwhile, in Regina snow routes have been declared which means for 24 hours starting Monday at 6 a.m. if you are parked on these routes you will get a ticket.
