In other news, our big snow storm over the weekend was a big bust for the cities of Edmonton, Regina and Saskatoon as the system narrowly missed the major centres.
Video of the snow just beginning to fall in downtown Regina Sunday afternoon.
Calgary, Swift Current, Medicine Hat and Brandon all got slammed with heavy snowfall. Many highways in Saskatchewan were marked as "Not Recommended or even closed for a time on Sunday. The Number 1 highway west of Moose Jaw as well as the main highway between Saskatoon and Regina the Number 11 was also closed due to tractor trailers jack knifing and car littering the ditches.

Here in Regina, a twitter storm was started with the tweet:
After many replies and retweets, I feel it is important to stress that the point of that tweet was to encourage people not to take chances on the roads during a severe winter storm, especially after getting word that tow truck drivers were told not to go on the highway until it cleared up. I didn't mention EMS, paramedics, RCMP, or first responders so as not to clog of their timelines. I know they are all busy and I thank them for what they do.
As for the weather, it seems the heaviest snowfall hit mostly rural areas which is going to increase the risk of spring flooding and that could start as early as this coming weekend. Temperatures are forecast to jump well above freezing with bright sunshine and light winds. All this moisture is going to boil fast so expect a very active spring. This may not be the last of the major snowfall events in March and severe thunderstorms could be only a few weeks (and a lot of melting) away.
Thanks, Stay Safe and Enjoy the Weather!
