We might have just celebrated the first day of summer, but that didn’t stop Mother Nature.
Environment Canada issued a frost advisory Friday night, and — despite it being in the forecast — it looks like most of Saskatchewan got away frost-free.
According to David Baggley, meteorologist with Environment Canada, the central part of Saskatchewan could have seen some light frost.
The coldest it got was in Coronach, Sask.; it dipped to 0.6 C.
Baggley said another frost advisory could be on the way Saturday night — that’s due to a cold ridge of high pressure.
“We have a very strong jet stream, which is keeping the warm temperatures down in the States,” explained Baggley. “We have an arctic air mass over the prairies right now, keeping the daytime temperatures below normal.”
Baggley added that we shouldn’t expect a sunburn anytime soon.
“Unfortunately there isn’t a warm up coming. The best I can say is that temperatures are going to be above normal on Monday and Tuesday, but — for the most part — it’s going to be around normal temperatures for the next little while.”
Normal summer temperatures for Regina are highs of 24 C and lows of 10 C.
