Environment Canada meteorologist Terri Lang says after two weeks of fog on and off, overall, there’s some mild air moving into Saskatchewan.
She says there is a risk of freezing for most of southern Saskatchewan, plus snow on top of that for central and northern regions.
She says this kind of freezing rain accumulates on the roadways in a really thick manner because the temperature stays below freezing plus there is all the rime ice built up on trees and power lines and she doesn’t think either will appreciate the addition of freezing rain.
Lang says southeastern Saskatchewan looks like it’s going to get a fair accumulation of freezing rain and to expect freezing rain warnings to be issued Saturday.
She says this is not a Chinook – because a Chinook brings a lot of wind.
