Harvest weather outlook sees cool and dry for most of this week in southern Sask.

The harvest weather forecast is cool and dry with no anticipation of frost this week in southern Saskatchewan.

Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips says farmers have faced some challenges this year, including a very dry spring and then a turnaround in rainfall.

He says most of this week should be sunny but cooler than normal.

He says temperatures usually reach 23 degrees but will range from 18 to 21 degrees this week.

Phillips says the long range forecast for the coming month in southern Saskatchewan is near normal temperatures but above average precipitation.

He says there is no outlook for frost this week but its not far away.

He says frost usually arrives in mid-September.

But he stresses the long range harvest outlook is best described as uncertain.
