Weather, in meteorological terms, refers to the daily elements like temperature, wind, and rain. And in Saskatchewan, they can all change hour by hour and day by day.

Natalie Hazel with Environment Canada told us what we’re in for this weekend. “Sunday and Monday look cloudy with a 40% chance of showers, with a risk of a thunderstorm as well. Around 23 is the high for Sunday and Monday both, but you know long weekends in the prairies are not always nice weather. And its kind of what we're suggesting here with the forecast.”

Hazel continues in regards to if this is a trend along with the past few years. “Very similar temperatures over-all, and it looks like a couple days here and there had some precipitation. Definitely more weather in 2016, quite a bit wetter for the first week of September. Looks like we had rather a significant system go through in the first week of September in 2015 as well. It doesn’t look like its been very different.”

“Right now our forecast is calling for a 40% chance of showers Sunday morning to Monday night. So maybe it will be better then they suggest, but I would still be prepared for wet weather. So if you're going camping or traveling, remember you could have showers and likely still a risk of a thunderstorm.”

It's this diversity and changeability that makes Estevan weather so distinct, say meteorologists. While temperatures are fairly mild and there are four distinct seasons, you can also get warm weather in the middle of February and freezing rain in the middle of August - or both in one day.
“The forecast is calling for a mix of sun and cloud, precipitation is not in the forecast at this time.”

“Well, even though we're getting into September its quite a crossover time, as we kind of get into the end of summer and fall like conditions. The concerns we’ve had this summer still exist, so if it's sunny you still need to take those precautions. If there are thunderstorms you still need to take precautions, but we might be moving into cooler temperatures. But that does not preclude any of those precautions. So don’t stop taking care of yourself because of its September. Those things still make a difference and still count. So don’t change your habits now.”

Stay up to date with the daily temperatures and take care out there.
