Saskatoon weather outlook: accumulating snow likely into next week
Cold front slides through Friday
Cloudy and cool Saturday
Snow begins late Sunday into Monday
Saskatoon could see snow on the ground by Monday morning as cool and unsettled weather moves in this weekend.
After a 17 degree day on Thursday in Saskatoon, the work week is ending off on a cool note with a cold front sliding through a bit earlier than anticipated today.
That front kicked up northerly winds up to 33 km/h this morning as temperatures fell to 4 degrees with some sunshine to start before clouds moved in midday as we climbed up to +5 by noon.
We’ll stay in the clouds this afternoon with the frontal boundary expected to remain to the south of the city, keeping us cool with a daytime high of 7 degrees expected.
There’s a slight chance of showers early this evening before clouds clear out of the area overnight and temperatures fall back to -3.
-7 is what it’ll feel like Saturday morning with wind chill with a chance of a few sunny breaks to start the day before clouds quickly build back in.
There is a slight chance of a few morning flurries that will switch over to a better chance of afternoon showers as a pulse of moisture pushes through and we climb to a daytime high in mid-single digits.
There is a good chance of snow Sunday afternoon, picking up into the evening as a low pressure system pushes moisture into our province as it develops in southern Alberta.
That system will allow east-southeasterly winds to pick up during the day with temperatures struggling to get into mid-single digits for an afternoon high.
Work Week Outlook
We’re likely to wake up to some snow on the ground Monday morning with a few centimetres is likely to fall into the early morning before it eases off during the day under cloudy skies with a daytime high barely above freezing.
Clouds look to stick around for the first half of the work week before we get into some sunshine and daytime highs climb from mid-single digits into double digits by week’s end.
