The days ahead
Saskatchewan is at the tail end of a weather system that brought snow to the region beginning Wednesday.
A snowfall warning was still in effect for parts of central and northeastern Saskatchewan with an additional five to 10 centimetres possible.
On Friday, flurries are expected to continue and temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees below normal for this time of year. In Regina, for example, the normal high should be around 14 C but may only reach 2 C on Friday.
Looking into the weekend, things should start to improve in southern Saskatchewan. While it will continue to be unseasonably cool, temperatures should reach 10 C by Sunday. Central portions of the province will be a few degrees cooler.
There may also be some lingering flurries in central Saskatchewan through the long weekend.
The current forecast for the holiday Monday includes rain.
After that, the sun should return with temperatures in the single digits (still cooler than normal) for most areas.
