You might have noticed the chill in the air today. Estevan got down to a low of +2oC this morning but it wasn't enough to break the record. 

"The record for this particular day is +1.1oC," shared Terri Lang with Environment Canada, "and that was set way back in 1908."

The record low set for August was -3.3oC. The average low is around 9oC.

"But certainly enough to remind us that colder temperatures are on the way. The nights are getting longer so the risk of getting to those lower temperatures is coming. However, it looks like this night was probably the coldest night that there will be for a while. The weather pattern is changing to a warmer weather pattern, more of a westerly flow so I think we'll see some warmer temperatures."

She added that she doesn't expect a risk of frost in the immediate future. 

As for the moke, Lang advised that it's still floating around and will probably get worse on and off before it gets better. 

"We're also looking at a pretty massive weather change coming on the weekend. We've got a big upper trough coming over western Canada and what that does is it brings cooler temperatures but it also brings a chance of precipitation which is something we haven't seen for a while."
