Sept. 21 officially marks the last full day of summer — and the weather is reinforcing the point with cold, wet conditions expected throughout Saskatchewan Friday and through the weekend.
Environment Canada meteorologist Mark Melsness said Saskatoon was sitting near the boundary between areas expecting rain and those expecting snow on Friday.
“It looks like areas south of Saskatoon will be mainly rain today and to the north, probably more in the form of snow.”
That included Regina, which was expected to see rain Friday and a high of 9 C.
Melsness said another weather system would be moving in to the province Saturday morning, bringing cooler air to areas of central and southern Saskatchewan.
“Especially down Kindersley way, so they could see as much as five to 10 centimetres (Saturday),” he said.
Saturday was also expected to bring a mix of rain and flurries to Regina and Saskatoon.
Both Saskatoon and Regina were expected to see a return to sunnier conditions and highs of 13 C on Monday.
