Saskatoon Forecast

Today

-6 is what it felt like this morning in Saskatoon with wind chill as temperatures fell below freezing overnight.

We did warm up quite quickly during the morning, up into the low teens by late morning as some high cloud moved in.

That high cloud will continue to funnel through as we continue to climb up to an afternoon high around 17 degrees.

Tonight

Clouds will clear out tonight as temperatures fall back into low single digits.

Thursday

It’ll be another sunny start to the day on Thursday with some higher clouds building in midday with a high UV index, so be sure to slap on some sunshine as exposed skin can start to burn in 10 minutes.

We should climb up to a daytime high in the low 20s, making Thursday the warmest day so far this year in Saskatoon!

Temperatures climb into the low 20s in Saskatoon on Thursday.

Friday

We get into the core of the massive upper ridge of high pressure that’s building in the heat on Friday with sunny skies expected throughout the day.

Temperatures will climb up even warmer during the day with an afternoon high pushing into the 26 degree range, but still a few degrees shy of any record highs, which sits in the low 30s Thursday through Sunday.

Massive upper ridge builds in the sunshine and heat to end the week.

Weekend Outlook

The heat and upper ridge looks like it’ll hold out at least for the first part of the weekend with clouds building back in later on Saturday as we climb to a daytime high around 27 degrees.

A low pressure system and associated trough may track through on Sunday, bringing with it instability, which means a return to some more clouds and chance of thunderstorm, but we still will likely climb to a high in the mid 20s.
