Enjoy this mild and sunny weather this week in most of Saskatchewan. Some flurries and cooler temperatures are returning next week.
Environment Canada says although it won’t be a drastically cold as it was just a few short weeks ago, some flurries and a cloudy sky will make it feel a bit dreary.
In the meantime, enjoy this week’s daytime highs of 6C – mild temperatures which are melting what’s left of the snow on the ground.
More records are expected to fall on Wednesday as mild Pacific air pushes further eastward across the Prairies.
