Saskatoon forecast


-9 is what it felt like Tuesday morning with wind chill as temperatures fell back to -4 to start the day under partly cloudy skies.

Partly to mostly sunny skies stuck around through the morning, helping warm us up to high single digits by noon.

A few more clouds filter through during the afternoon as we make our way up to a daytime high just into double digits.

Tuesday night

Some of those clouds will linger into the evening before skies start to clear overnight as we cool back below the freezing mark by a few degrees.


-5 is around what it’ll feel like with wind chill as you’re stepping out the door Wednesday morning under mostly sunny skies.

Beautiful blue skies and sunshine will dominate the day as we warm up into double digits by noon and then to around 17 C for an afternoon high – the warmest temperature seen so far this October.

Even warmer air rolls in on Wednesday as central Saskatchewan swings into the warm sector of a system in the Northwest Territories.

The upper ridge of high pressure that brought in the warm day on Wednesday will keep the mid-teen temperatures around Thursday afternoon under mostly sunny skies.

A cold front will sweep through on Friday and will kick up a few clouds, gusty winds and drop our daytime high back into low double digits.

Gusty winds pick back up across the region on Friday as a cold front slides through.
