It looks like spring is starting to arrive on the Canadian prairies.
Over the past few days, temperatures across Saskatchewan and Manitoba have risen to be just below the zero degrees celsius threshold.
Environment Canada Meteorlogist Dan Fulton says for the most part, those milder conditions will be sticking around throughout next week.
“We’re look at a little bit of light snow for southern Saskatchewan,” said Fulton. “There’s a little system moving through. And after that, there’s not much in the way of weather, but temperatures remaining pretty close to the zero mark for the daytime highs.”
Fulton noted it’s safe to assume, as far wicked winter weather goes, we’re in the clear.
“I think we’re getting into the home stretch,” he said. “I wouldn’t want to rule out one or two more cold snaps, but since we’re already getting towards the end of February and we’ll be in March soon, we won’t see any cold weather for the next week or so.”
