Environment Canada released a snowfall warning as a system is bearing down on the southeast.

Snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 20 cm is expected for portions of southeastern Saskatchewan on Wednesday.

A Montana low-pressure system will begin to spread accumulating snow to extreme southeastern Saskatchewan Wednesday morning before ending overnight.

Areas closest to the American border will see the highest amounts with 24-hour total snowfall accumulations close to 20 cm.

City of Estevan Roads & Drainage Manager Hayley DeConinck says "Our equipment and sanding trucks are all ready to go should we need it.  I will be monitoring the weather as it changes."

With this early snowfall, Environment Canada says they look to remind everyone that winter is just around the corner, and residents are encouraged to prepare for winter driving conditions and falling temperatures.
