Saskatoon weather outlook: fog advisory issued west of Saskatoon
Rain/thunderstorms possible Wednesday
Warm and sunny Thursday
Cold front slides through Friday
Cool and unsettled weekend
Sunshine and warmer air is finally on the horizon, but it doesn’t last long!
Environment Canada has issued a fog advisory for the North Battleford, Kindersley, Rosetown, Biggar, Meadow Lake, Lloydminster and Big River areas.
A ridge of high pressure will build in from the north and the combination of clearing skies and light winds means that widespread dense fog is likely to develop Wednesday night.
This fog will lift Thursday morning.
Fog patches are possible throughout most of southern Saskatchewan, however the most dense and persistent fog is expected to be in the regions along the Alberta boundary.
If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.

We fell to the freezing mark this morning in Saskatoon under partly cloudy skies before clouds rolled back in as a low pressure system passed by south of us.
That system brought light rain south of the city for the first half of the day as temperatures climbed up to 7 degrees by noon.
That light rain may creep northward into our area this afternoon with even a chance of an isolated thunderstorm as we warm up to an afternoon high in low double digits.
That rain risk will diminish this evening with clouds starting to break up overnight as we cool back below freezing by a few degrees.
-5 is around what it’ll feel like tomorrow morning with wind chill as you head out the door with a few clouds in the morning that’ll clear out midday to finally give us some sunshine for the rest of the day!
Thursday will not only be our only sunny day in the 7-day forecast, it’ll also be our warmest with an upper ridge building in, helping warm us up to 15 degrees for a daytime high.
Rain and clouds are on the way Friday as a cold front slides through, kicking up winds a bit and dropping temperatures from double digits down to the freezing mark by evening.
Cooler air will sink in behind that system this weekend with predominantly cloudy skies expected Saturday and cloud cover expected Sunday with a good chance of snow as a system pushes into Alberta.
Daytime highs will drop back into mid-single digits both days with morning lows a few degrees below freezing.
