Freezing Rain or Intense Snowfall?

A very large area of intense precipitation has developed over southwestern Saskatchewan this afternoon and threatens to engulf most of southern Saskatchewan this evening. Accumulation amounts are not expected to be very high but dangerous driving conditions are pretty much guaranteed. Convective elements are showing up on radar as some areas may get thunderstorm type action with this system. All major centres will be affected as the area of precipitation is hundreds of kilometres wide. Currently, freezing rain warnings are active for the Swift Current and Kindersley regions
