Today

After a warm, above freezing weekend with a daytime high of +3 on Saturday and +4 on Sunday, the big cool down is about to kick in!

Saskatoon saw some rain overnight night as the first disturbance associated with the cool down passed through, pulling us into a northwesterly flow with temperatures sitting around +1 this morning.

Northwesterly winds picked up midday with sustained speeds around 30 km/h and gusts into the 40 to 50 km/h range, which will continue into the afternoon as temperatures sit around freezing with a chance of light snow, which is scattered around the region today under mostly cloudy skies.

Partly cloudy skies are expected on Wednesday before clouds clear out even more as an arctic high pressure system moves in giving us mostly sunny skies both Thursday and Friday.

Weekend Outlook

A system sliding by south of the area is expected to push in some clouds with a chance of flurries on Saturday before we get back into some sunshine on Sunday.

Daytime highs are likely to remain in minus double digits as cooler air prevails right into the first full week of February.
