Massive warm-up for one day only before arctic air surges back in for Valentine’s Day!
A surge of heat kicked into Saskatoon Tuesday morning with temperatures a whopping 20 degrees warmer than Monday morning with breezy southwesterly winds ushering in the mild wind.
There were a few sunny breaks to start the day with wind chills a few degrees into the -20s before we popped up into minus single digits before noon.
Clouds stuck around for the rest of the day as winds picked up, which will help pushed us up toward the freezing mark for an afternoon high.
Valentine’s Day will kick off with a cold front swinging through plunging us back into the arctic air as cloudy skies stick around with some light snow at times.
Don’t be deceived by the warm morning though, temperatures will fall back into minus double digits by afternoon with northerly winds kicking in with gusts upwards of 50 km/h and wind chills dropping back into the -20s by evening.
Wind chills will approach the -40s again Thursday morning as an arctic high drops in and clears skies back out with an afternoon high in the mid-minus teens.
Clouds will filter back in on Friday with a push of milder air helping push us back up toward and likely into mid-minus single digits in the afternoon.
Family Day Long Weekend Outlook
Minus double digits daytime highs move back in for Family Day long weekend with partly to mostly cloudy skies through the weekend and daytime highs dropping back into the mid-minus teens and overnight lows into the -20s with morning wind chills into the -30 to -40 range.
