Saskatoon weather outlook: blast of snow and wind

A blast of snow and wind slides in mid-week.

Saskatoon forecast

Tuesday

Temperatures fell through the morning from -1 at around 4 a.m. down to -8 by 9 a.m. before warming up toward -5 heading into the noon hour.

A real mixed bag of conditions started the day with some snow overnight, then skies started to clear with a bit of mist forming mid-morning that reduced visibility down to two kilometres at times.

Mostly sunny skies linger into the afternoon as we climb up to an afternoon high just shy of the freezing mark.

Tuesday night

Mostly clear skies Tuesday evening will be replaced by clouds rolling in overnight as conditions cool back to -6.

Wednesday

-10 is around what it’ll feel like with wind chill Wednesday morning, but mostly cloudy skies will linger during the morning with snow beginning midday as a cold front pushes in.

Temperatures should hop up to -1 during the day with a blustery west-northwesterly wind picking up to 30 km/h with gusts in excess of 50 km/h at times in the afternoon before skies clear later on.

Snow will swing into the Saskatoon area on Wednesday along a cold front.

Thursday-Friday

Another round of clouds pushes in on Thursday before sunshine returns across the region as an upper ridge rebuilds on Friday.

Daytime highs should spike up above the freezing mark both days as warm air spills back in across the Prairies.

An upper ridge will build in some warm air to finish the week.

Weekend outlook

Mild air will stick around for the weekend ahead as an upper ridge builds back in, keeping skies partly-to-mostly sunny with daytime highs around the freezing mark.
