The southeast is in for some ups and downs when it comes to temperatures in the next few days. 

"It will be warming up," explained regional meteorologist, John Paul Cragg with Environment Canada. "We've got some southerly winds moving in to the area that will help to raise temperatures up to close to one degree for Sunday and potentially close to freezing again on Monday before temperatures plunge once again for the beginning of next week. And then back up again on Wednesday and Thursday. A bit of a roller coast for the next little while."

"The warmer temperatures on Sunday and Monday come from a southwesterly flow off the mountains into the southeast. And with that flow, warmer air is expected. The cold air you have been experiencing is thanks to an Arctic flow. The air mass will change as air from the Pacific will make its way over to southeastern Saskatchewan warming temperatures up over the weekend."

Cragg adds the up and down temperatures swings are quite common for this time of year as air moves in from the Arctic cooling things down and then also from the Pacific, which brings about the warmer temperatures.

"By the time we get to Wednesday and Thursday of next week, models are showing the potential for temperatures to rise up maybe as far as five degrees. It is quite a warm up coming for the middle to end of next week. So the roller coaster ride is here with temperatures but there's some light at the end of the tunnel with a really warm spell ending the week next week."

Cragg noted that they are calling for some windy conditions over the next few days.

"We're expecting fairly strong winds over the next couple days. We're forecasting winds of 20 km/hr gusting to 40 overnight tonight and those winds turning to the southwest at about 20 km/hr in the afternoon. And then on Monday again, there will be a system that passes through central Saskatchewan, mostly affecting northern Saskatchewan with quite a bit of snow but down in the southeast, you could expect some strong winds again Monday potentially Tuesday in the wake of that low."

Cragg expects winds could be as high as 40 km/hr gusting to 60 km/hr. 

"It will be those stronger winds Monday night into Tuesday that will drop your temperatures down and that's why we're forecasting -16 as the overnight low Monday night, and Tuesday only a high of -8, before temperatures rebound."
