There are blizzard and blowing snow warnings for that entire section, including Moose Jaw, Swift Current, North Battleford and Kindersley.

There is plenty left to show from a record-breaking year of snow in Regina.

It’s not cheap to clear Regina’s streets on an average year of snowfall, and this year has been far from average.
“Up 'til the end of February we had spent about $4.6 million,” said City of Regina’s manager of winter maintenance Chris Warren.

Warren said they’re definitely over and above a typical year for this time.
