Saskatchewan is getting a bit of a break from the cold to start the week.
“We’ve been somewhat below normal for a good period of time. But there’s definitely some warmer air coming in from Alberta, that’s pushing in from the west,” said Environment Canada meteorologist David Baggaley.
Both Regina and Saskatoon were expected to see highs above 0 C through the day Tuesday, then hit daytime highs of 5 C on Wednesday.
However, Baggaley warned the warmer temperatures wouldn’t last. Cooler air was expected to move into the province through the day Thursday, bringing daytime highs to around the -10 C mark Friday and Saturday in both Regina and Saskatoon.
The Highway Hotline was reporting seasonal driving conditions and good visibility for the entire province south of Prince Albert. However, the province continued to urge drivers to check before they travel, as conditions can change rapidly.
Baggaley noted that some southern parts of the province might see fog early Tuesday morning, but he said he didn’t expect it to stick around very long.
