This Thanksgiving Weekend could turn out to be a great opportunity to stay indoors and eat your fill as winds, low temperatures, and even the chance of flurries are in the forecast for this weekend.

"There is a low pressure system that is going to be passing through northern Saskatchewan," shares Regional Meteorologist with Environment Canada, John Paul Cragg, "and it's going to bring a little of grayer, cooler weather to southeastern Saskatchewan."

"We have the chance of showers moving in tomorrow with winds picking up. We're forecasting winds from the west at 40 km/hr gusting to 60 for the whole southeast corner of the province, and a lot of the southern half of Saskatchewan. And that risk of showers continues through Sunday and into Sunday night where we do have a risk of showers or flurries because we are forecasting temperatures to be dropping off to minus 3 Sunday night into Monday morning."

He adds that they are not forecasting a lot of precipitation.

"If we do see precipitation in the southeast corner over the weekend, it will be quite light. And if you do see flurries, Sunday night into Monday morning, that will be very light as well so nothing accumulating on the ground."

"Because the low is passing through northern Saskatchewan, it is really just a little bit of light precipitation that southeast Saskatchewan can expect as well as the drop in temperatures so there will be a cold front moving through the area and with it, temperatures will start to drop off. We're looking at a high of only 9 degrees for Monday coming from the high of 19 that we're expecting today."

However, those conditions won't last long before we see the return of the sun. 

"In behind this low pressure, we're expecting high pressure to move in which means clearer skies and the beginning of a warm up in temperatures. It won't be a drastic warm up but enough that you could see temperatures getting into the mid to high teens by the end of next week."
