Saskatoon weather outlook: storms, slightly warmer May long weekend
Warmth returns Friday
Chance of thundershowers Saturday
Calmer Victoria Day Monday
Heat builds back in with a chance of storms over May long weekend.
Partly to mostly cloudy skies overnight kept us fairly mild with temperatures only falling back to 4 degrees overnight.
Plenty of blue skies and sunny breaks along with some cloudy periods stuck around Friday morning as a warm southerly wind kicked in with gusts of 30 to 40 km/h, helping to warm us up into the high teens by noon!
Mild air continued to funnel in for the rest of the day with a few more clouds building in and an afternoon high around 20 degrees as winds pick up to 30 km/h with gusts upwards of 50 km/h.
Partly to mostly clear skies will be the feature of Friday night as the mercury drops back into mid-single digits.
Some sunshine will start the long weekend on Saturday, helping warm us up into double digits by the time you wake up before climbing into the low 20s by afternoon!
Clouds will build back in during the day with a chance of showers and the risk of a thunderstorm in the afternoon as a trough swings through.
Some lingering moisture and instability is expected to make our Sunday partly to mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms.
As a result, temperatures are likely to top out slightly cooler by a degree or so, but still in the low 20s for an afternoon high.
Victoria Day Monday
We may start off our Victoria Day Monday with a few clouds before we clear to get into some midday sunshine with a chance of a few clouds building up during the afternoon.
During the day we should warm up into the low 20s before cooling back into the mid-teens for anyone planning to enjoy any evening festivities or fireworks displays.
Work Week Outlook
The real heat returns next week as an upper ridge punches its way back in on Tuesday and Wednesday, helping boost temperatures into the mid 20s with some sun and cloud.
We’re expecting to cool down toward the end of the week as our ridge breaks down and models bring in an upper low that could give us some rain to end the week.
