Saskatoon forecast

Tuesday

It was a cooler start to school as temperatures fell back to 7 C following a below seasonal Labour Day long weekend in the city.

Breezy northwesterly winds kicked in during the morning with gusts pushing toward 40 km/h as we hopped into double digits before noon.

Breezy winds stick around all afternoon as we struggle to make it up to a daytime high in the mid-teens under a mix of sun and cloud.

Tuesday night

Clear skies combined with a high pressure system passing by and light winds will create perfect conditions for frost to form as temperatures slide down below freezing by a degree or so overnight.

Low-lying areas could see a killing frost in areas with the mercury sliding a few degrees below freezing, so be sure to cover or bring in any frost-sensitive plants.

Wednesday

Jackets will be the order of the day with a cool start to the second day of school, but blue skies and sunshine combined with a breezy southwesterly wind will help warm us right up during the day.

You can throw those coats aside on your way home from work and school as we’ll make it back into the low 20s by afternoon with just a few clouds filtering through.

Thursday-Friday

The rest of the short work week ahead will be a bit warmer as an upper ridge ushers back in the heat under a mix of sun and cloud with a slight chance of showers on Friday.

Temperatures should make it up to around 22 C Thursday before springing up into the mid-20s to wrap up the week on Friday.

Weekend outlook

There still is some uncertainty with the weekend outlook, however at this point a system is expected to bring in clouds and a chance of rain Saturday into early Sunday before some late weekend clearing.

Daytime highs should make it into the low-to-mid 20s Saturday before falling back toward the teens on Sunday, however you will want to keep checking back in as we refine the forecast in the days ahead.
