Environment Canada issued a special weather statement, with heavy snow and strong winds destined for southeastern Saskatchewan this weekend.

A Colorado low - the same type of system that rocked the region last week - will likely bring a mix of precipitation, including "a significant swath of heavy snow from extreme southeastern Saskatchewan through the Manitoba parklands and interlake," according to the statement.

The department is calling for 20 to 50 plus total centimetres of snow during the storm, with areas closest to the Manitoba border being hit hardest.

"Strong winds gusting 70 to 90 km/h are also possible Saturday into Sunday morning. When combined with the heavy falling snow, reduced visibilities in blowing snow are expected. This will make travel difficult in these areas."

The forecast predicts conditions to improve on Monday. Though colder-than-normal temperatures will stick around throughout the next work week. Highs of 6 C are forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, which are about eight degrees cooler than usual for this time of year.

"Confidence regarding the track of this Colorado low is slowly improving but remains uncertain and deviations in the track could lead to significant changes in the projected storm-total accumulations, precipitation type, and wind speeds over the region."
