Blowing snow and wind chill warnings were issued for some areas of southern Saskatchewan on Tuesday.
A blowing snow warning is in effect for the southwestern part of the province.
Environment Canada says winds gusting up to 70 kilometres an hour will reduce visibility to less than a kilometre.
RCMP say they responded to more than 30 crashes across the province, including two rollovers near Pense and Grand Coulee.
Four crashes, including one involving a jackknifed semi-trailer, were reported amid icy conditions on Highway 11 near Disley and Bethune.
Mounties are advising motorists to drive with caution and to check highway conditions before heading out.
A wind chill warning that was issued for the Regina, Fort Qu’Appelle, Estevan and Weyburn areas has since been lifted.
With the wind chill, temperatures felt like they were hovering around -40C.
