Saskatoon weather outlook: 30 degree heat possible
Heat cranks up Wednesday
Clouds return Thursday
30 degree heat may be hit as wind returns to the forecast.
High pressure dropped in this morning, keeping us under mostly sunny skies this morning and allowing temperatures to fall back to 4 degrees to start the day.
As it moved in, our winds finally eased as we warmed up into the mid-teens by late morning. With a high UV index continuing, be sure to slap on some sunscreen as skin will burn in a matter of minutes.
Mostly sunny skies will continue for the rest of the day as we warm up to an afternoon high a few degrees into the low 20s.
Clear skies will stick around tonight as we cool back to a low in mid-single digits.
An upper ridge moves in and really heats us up on Wednesday with a daytime high around 27 degrees expected as southerly winds pick up with gusts upwards of 30 to 40 km/h at times.
Sunny skies are expected to stick around all day with a high UV index again, so keep the sunscreen and sunglasses handy for this final day of May!
Clouds move back in to kick off June on Thursday as a low pressure system pushes into Alberta, bringing in a good chance of rain on Friday.
A breezy southerly wind on Thursday may push temperatures up into the 30s in the afternoon, depending how much sun we see with cooler air moving in on Friday with a daytime high lower down in the 20s.
Rain and cloud are likely to linger on Saturday as that trough and low pressure system slide by before we expect to get into some more sunshine to end off the weekend.
Daytime highs will also take a bit of a hit, but should still climb into the low 20s on both Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
