Plenty of snow fell in Saskatoon over the weekend so the city could declare a snowfall.
Congestion was a total of seven centimeters, which reached the 5 cm threshold to declare a snow event, the fourth of the season.
By declaring a snow event, the city could call in contractor graders to help clear priority streets, city officials said in a release Sunday night.

Those streets will be graded just before the spring melt if the snowpack on streets is at least 15cm thick, city officials said.
Application of thawing material along priority streets, bridge decks and busy intersections will continue as temperatures continue to fluctuate.
The removal of snowdrifts along priority roads continues, but city officials said it could potentially be put on hold if teams are reassigned to handle snow in priority roads.
