The weekend has come again after a short week and the weather will be an interesting topic. Terri Lang, Regional Meteorologist for Environmental Canada talks about what the weekend holds for Estevan and area weather wise .

"It looks like a bit of a mix bag of weather coming up. We have quite a strong system that is incoming overnight, as for today it started out relativity nice with temperatures getting closer to that ten degree mark which was pleasant seeing as how cold it has been. Precipitation is moving in and around late this afternoon to this evening we should see some rain showers that will switch over to wet snow overnight, closer to morning. Tomorrow we're going to see quite a bit of wind, so tomorrow will be quite a windy, cool, snow flurry type of day. Anyone traveling tomorrow should be careful and prepared to run into snowy weather. It should clear up towards Sunday but it will still be on the cooler side."

Lang shares her thoughts on the week to come, "For week wise it doesn't look all that bad, it looks like it might try to warm up to season value. We've been way below season for much of September and most of October so far but we will see as the week draws near, the long range forecast has really struggled this fall."

Lang also asks that those who are planing to travel this weekend to take precautions and to watch the highway hot line in case of bad driving conditions.
