A breezy southwesterly wind kicked in during the morning, helping Saskatoon climb to high single digits and Regina into double digits into the noon hour under mostly cloudy skies.
As a cold front sweeps through the province there is a chance of showers during the afternoon hours as with northwest winds picking up to 50 km/h at times as temperatures top out near or into low double digits.
Winds stay strong around 30 gusting to 50 km/h Friday evening behind the cold front as temperatures fall a few degrees below freezing overnight.
-11 is around what it’ll feel like with wind chill Saturday morning as gusty northwesterly winds continue into the day with an afternoon high in upper single digits.
The weekend will begin with sunny skies before a few clouds filter in during the afternoon hours.
Cooler conditions will prevail on Sunday as temperatures aim to make their way back up into high single digits after a cool and sunny start to the day.
Clouds will yet again roll back in across the region during the afternoon with a slight chance of late day showers to round off the weekend.
