Extreme cold moves out
Chance of snow this weekend
Big warm up next week
Above freezing temperatures ahead
We go from one extreme to the next with some snow in between.
Clouds build in earlier than anticipated last night so we only fell back to wind chills of -33 with temperatures around -24 this morning.
We warmed into minus teens by noon with cloud cover sticking around for the afternoon.
Pacific moisture passing by just southwest of the city will push northward late in the day toward Saskatoon as we warm up a few more degrees to a daytime high around -17.
Cloudy skies with a good chance of snow will stick around as we slide back to -22 overnight.
-32 is around what it’ll feel like Saturday morning with wind chill under mostly cloudy skies that’ll clear during the morning before returning for the afternoon with a chance of flurries into the evening.
We’re expecting to warm up to an afternoon high in mid-minus teens, but it’ll feel like the -20s all day with wind chill.
A low pressure system sliding by south of Saskatchewan will keep us in the clouds and give us a good chance of snow on Sunday.
It’ll also help push us into some even warmer air with the mercury bumping up even further to around -13 for an afternoon high.
Work Week Outlook
A big warm up is on the way early next week as an upper ridge builds in, allowing daytime highs to rise up into minus single digits on Monday before pushing up above freezing by mid-week under partly to mostly cloudy skies.
