Warm weather is expected throughout much of Saskatchewan Friday and into the weekend.
Saskatoon was looking on-pace to break a record high of 7.4 C set in 1988. However, that became much less likely by mid-morning as Environment Canada revised its projected high for the Bridge City down from 8 C to 5 C.
By comparison, the coldest weather record for Feb. 26 was set back in 1919 when the temperature dipped down to -44.4 C.
Regina is expected to get up to 12 C, which would break its previous record of 8.9 C set in 1932.
The balmy weather in the provincial capital even means people will have a chance to break out their golf clubs.
The Paisley Golf driving range will be opening its doors the earliest it ever has.
“We have very little snow out on the field and we’ve been getting lots of calls. And the weather’s supposed to be pleasant for the weekend, so we decided we’ll open,” said owner Bill Paisley.
