Big storm this weekend in Saskatchewan?

Model forecasts are seeming to converge on a monster storm to smoke southern Saskatchewan on Saturday and Sunday. Below I've got the 120 hour GEM Global imagery, showing a huge precipitation bull's eye (near 60 mm) in the Assiniboia region, and below that a surface temperature forecast, showing 0°C over the same area. If this comes true, weekend travel could be brutal in Saskatchewan.

For what it's worth, the GFS also shows a similar scenario, at least in the big picture; the details will shake out eventually.

Watch this one. It could be a doozy.

Well, it hit, but it was farther west and north. Over 30 cm has been reported. We'll see how much fell overall, at some later time.
