Another roller coaster ride in the weather is on the way.
Environment Canada Meteorologist John Paul Cragg says we’ve been seeing a series of low pressure systems, one right after the other.
“We’ve been seeing a lot of Alberta Clippers – so that’s the type of weather systems we’ve been seeing,” Cragg said. “And those systems move very, very quickly. So, they start in Alberta and whip across the prairies. And they can bring a drastic change in temperature. Often a little bit of warm up, strong winds as the system moves through and cold air as the system moves on.”
Cragg says November’s temperatures have been quite a bit colder than average.
“But thanks to this low pressure system, we are also expecting potentially a little bit of rain,” Cragg said. “Maybe some freezing rain Thursday night into Friday morning. And some pretty strong winds. We’re looking at wind gusts of up to 70 km/hr.
With temperatures rising overnight, the temperature is supposed to warm up to at least 7C in Regina on Thursday with highs at or just above the freezing mark continuing through the weekend.
Meantime, fog advisories were issued early Thursday morning. Environment Canada warns motorists might encounter thick fog on highways and even in the Queen City.
