The extreme cold warning that lingered through the entirety of the weekend has now been lifted as wind chill values popped out of the -40s and back into the -30s earlier today and then into the -20s by late morning.

Light snow moved into the area with an upper disturbance passing through over Saskatoon this afternoon with a daytime high climbing into the mid-minus teens.


Snow will continue into the evening with a few centimeters expected by the time it tapers off overnight.

Temperatures will fall back toward the -20 degree mark by morning.


Mostly cloudy skies will start the day tomorrow with a mix of sun and cloud on tap throughout the remainder of the day.

Wind chill values into to the mid-to-low minus 20s will linger through the morning before we warm up to a high in the mid-minus teens by afternoon.


Wednesday looks to remain mostly cloudy with a daytime high in the mid-minus teens again before we warm into minus single digit daytime highs Thursday with a mix of sun and cloud and Friday under mostly cloudy skies.

Friday’s high will be in the mid-minus single digits as a warm push of air moves in with some breezier conditions.

An area of low pressure is expected to pass through Saturday bringing with it some snow that is likely to linger into Sunday.

The system will help usher in some warmer conditions with daytime highs in the mid-minus single digits and lows just into minus double digits Saturday and minus teens Sunday.
