Saskatoon weather outlook: frosty Thursday, change for May long weekend
Frosty Thursday morning
Warmer weather moves in Friday
Unsettled May long weekend
Frosty start to the day with temperatures falling below freezing, but changes are moving in just in time for the long weekend!
An arctic high sliding by helped temperatures fall below freezing Thursday morning with widespread frost across the region.
Temperatures in Saskatoon fell back to -2 with places like Prince Albert and North Battleford cooling back to -4 to start the day with wind chills making it feel as cool as -6.
Sunny skies with some high clouds stuck around, which assisted in quickly warming us up into double digits by mid-morning.
Sunshine and some high cloud stuck around during the afternoon with a daytime high in the mid-teens.
A warm, southerly wind around 20 km/h to 30 km/h will kick in to end off the work week thanks to a low pressure system in northern Alberta, which will help warm us up into the high teens for a daytime high.
Sunny skies will start the morning with some more clouds likely to build in during the day.
May Long Weekend
The kick off to the long weekend will be lovely with temperatures climbing into the low 20s on Saturday and increasing cloudiness during the day as a trough swings through with a chance of late day showers.
Sunday will be slightly cooler and cloudier with a chance of showers and risk of a thunderstorm and a daytime high still expected to make it into the low 20s.
Unsettled conditions continue for Victoria Day Monday with a chance of showers or thunderstorms as we warm up to an afternoon high in the high teens or low 20s.
Work Week Outlook
Most models are bringing in an upper ridge of high pressure to start the work week, keeping us in some more sunshine with daytime highs in the low 20s into the middle of the week.
