Warmer April type weather on its way later this week

Aside from a few days scattered here and there, it’s been a cold start to spring and the month of April for much of Saskatchewan.

According to Environment Canada’s Justin Shaer that will change later this week for Regina and the surrounding area.

“An upper ridge of high pressure will build in over western Canada in the coming days, typically that means sunny and warmer weather and that’s what’s going to be happening over Saskatchewan,” he said.

The normal daytime high for Regina this time of year is about 12 degrees, on Tuesday we’ll climb to just zero, but by Friday and moving forward more seasonal values are expected.

While saying it’s okay to be optimistic, Shaer also said you can’t rule anything out on the prairies this time of year when it comes to winter type weather.

“We’re moving towards summer so eventually it will warm up and everything,” Shaer said. “I live in Winnipeg and I’ve seen blizzards in May, so I have a hard time saying this is it and it will only be getting warmer from here until it’s the end of May for myself,” Shaer said.
