Good news. Environment Canada says we can put our long-johns away — at least for this week.
After weeks of issuing multiple extreme cold warnings across Saskatchewan — both in the northern and southern regions of the province — the weather agency predicts we are due for a significant warm up.
Justin Shaer with Environment Canada says there’s a trough of warm air on its way Tuesday.
Shaer says there still are weather warnings in western Canada – adding they’re mostly for wind or snow.
Strong winds are forecast for southwestern Saskatchewan Monday afternoon.
Westerly winds are expected to reach warning level strength with gusts up to 90 km/h possible. Winds will gradually diminish Monday evening.
Warmer temperatures usually mean snow could be in the forecast for Saskatchewan as well, Shaer adds.
But he says it’s still too early to determine exactly how much of the white stuff we can expect.
