Saskatoon Forecast

Thursday

Partly cloudy skies started the day in Saskatoon as temperatures fell back to 4 degrees in the morning.

A big upper ridge building in helped warm us right up to 21 degrees before noon as some high clouds moved in.

Those clouds stuck around for the afternoon as we warm up to a daytime high in the mid 20s.

Friday

We get into the centre of the upper ridge that’s punching in the heat on Friday under sunny skies throughout the day.

Temperatures are expected to climb up to around 27 degrees or so with a high UV index, so be sure to slap on some sunscreen as skin can burn in just a few minutes.

Saskatoon will warm up even further into the mid 20s on Friday.

Weekend

A system sliding into extreme northern Alberta will further reinforce the heat on Saturday with a few more clouds building in as we climb up to a daytime high in the mid-to-upper 20s once again.

Slightly cooler air starts to slide in on Sunday with the cold front associated with that system that’ll drop us back into the low 20s with more clouds and a chance of showers and risk of a thunderstorm.

Massive upper ridge brings in the hottest air so far this year to Saskatoon.
