It feels like it should have been here for a month, but Saskatchewan is still waiting for the arrival of spring.

It's likely not going to happen this week, with another snowfall on the way over the next 48 hours for the Humboldt region.

After what's anticipated to be a windy Monday afternoon and evening, with a southeast wind gusting up to 60 km/h, Environment Canada is calling for a dump of 5-10 centimetres of snow on Tuesday. Snowblower Ice SpringThe Snowblowers And Shovels Can't Be Put Away Just Yet.

"Once this disturbance gets into eastern Saskatchewan, it's going to be moving extremely slowly and that will create some persistent snowfall in the Humboldt area," explains Mike Russo, Meteorologist with Environment Canada.

"On the satellite photos, we did see that the snow was melting away. But obviously, with this next system coming along, we're going to see the snow cover reappearing for a little while."

However, the warm light is at the end of the tunnel as Russo says we could see significant melting and our first taste of normal temperatures by this weekend.

"For a good portion of this week, the average temperatures will remain well below normal at anywhere between (+2 and +6) when it's usually around (+10)," added Russo.

"But on the weekend, it's closer towards normal at around (+11)."

Russo emphasizes safety on the streets in Humboldt and on the highways, especially at the start of this week with a combination of wind, snow and potentially freezing rain.

Keep a close eye on the ROAD REPORT for the latest highway conditions.
