Saskatoon is currently experiencing the first snowfall of the winter season, with approximately 2 cm of snow on the ground from overnight flurries.

City sanders were out all night applying salt along Priority 1 streets and Circle Drive to keep ice from forming on our high speed roadways, which are expected to dry up as the temperatures rise today. Many of the priority streets were also salted through the night; however, residential streets have a layer of packed snow that may form ice with regular traffic and drivers should reduce speeds, especially approaching intersections.

The reconstruction work on McClocklin Road has concluded for the season. Work will resume in spring 2018, when the final phase of construction is expected to take approximately four weeks. Please continue to respect all posted detours, signage and barriers.

Environment Canada forecasts a high probability of snow starting this afternoon and continuing into tomorrow, with up to 5 cm of accumulation. Wind and temperatures around zero are also expected which may cause blowing snow to decrease visibility and produce slippery road conditions.
