Snow Today in Saskatoon

Snow is falling once again this morning, adding to the already caked-in roads around Saskatoon. It is forecast to end later this morning but it does seem to be coming down in a heavy type fashion right now. Check our cams to see the latest accumulations.

Also, in case you didn't notice, Environment Canada quickly changed their Monday forecast a full 7 degrees colder with the high to be -5. It is baffling to try and understand the logic or politics behind giving us a 5 day forecast that is almost always totally wrong or just way off target. A better plan might be to impliment a new system where the long term forecast is either a predictable one with a major system coming in or a total toss-up giving us a range of temperatures. For example, our forecast for Monday is for a 49% chance of snow, and temperatures somewhere between -4 and -30. If anything changes on that we will let you know. Given that formula we could say that on Canada Day, July 1st, 2006 the forecast is for tmperatures to be between +30 and +10 with a 51% chance of a severe thunderstorm.
