Record breaking mild weather possible for southern Sask. this weekend

If the current forecast holds true, Saturday has the potential to bring record breaking mild temperatures across parts of southern Saskatchewan.

Brad Vrolijk, a lead forecaster with Environment Canada, said a fairly potent low pressure system will bring high’s in the upper single digits to many communities in southern Saskatchewan.

However further north Vrolijk said there will be some accumulating snowfall.

“Essentially we’re expecting to see snow develop snow to develop across central Alberta and push across central Saskatchewan before moving into Manitoba throughout the weekend,” Vrolijk said.

The highest snowfall amount is expected to be around five centimeters in the Prince Albert region.

Meanwhile, Regina is expecting a high of plus five while Moose Jaw could climb to a record breaking seven degrees.

The normal high this time of year is about minus 10 for Regina and minus nine for Moose Jaw.

A return to more seasonal temperatures is expected next week.
