This will come as a nasty surprise to the Easter Bunny making plans for a busy weekend.

Environment Canada is predicting a major storm for the area, including the Battlefords, Meadow Lake and Prince Albert.

Residents will want to avoid travelling if possible Thursday night and Friday after news of a possible snowstorm coming to the local area.
The region, including central, west-central and northern Saskatchewan, is expected to be hit by a major storm starting Thursday night and continuing Friday, bringing up to 30-40 centimetres of snow, with winds gusting up to 80 kilometres per hour.

 According to Environment Canada, a major low pressure system over Montana on Thursday will be bringing the heavy snowfall into the area Thursday night and Friday. 

The storm may also contribute to localized flooding in low-lying areas.

Environment Canada said since the local region is situated on the rain-snow boundary area, residents will want to check back for an update of the forecast as it may change at any time, depending on conditions.
