The typical Saskatchewan roller coaster ride of weather continues in the southeast. Coming out of the deep freeze, residents may end up being thrown into a figurative furnace, relatively speaking.
"We're still seeing a little bit of the influence of that arctic air that's now sitting in Manitoba and northern Ontario. However, over the next couple of days that cold arctic air will move further east, and it will be replaced by much warmer air from the pacific. It will stream over the mountains and down into Saskatchewan, creating a situation where temperatures will get close to zero for daytime highs, and generally get down to around -10 C for overnight lows for the next few days," shared Environment Canada's John Paul Cragg.
As the air mass makes it's way to the prairies, the Warning Preparedness Meteorologist noted that this one will be fairly dry.
"We're looking at almost no precipitation, all the way through until Wednesday the 10th, at which point cold arctic air could start to stream back into the province."
It's too far in advance yet to predict exactly how low those future temperatures will get, but Cragg said that they could get close to those seen over the past couple weeks.
As the new weather filters in and begins to melt the recently accumulated snow, hazards could also arise for motorists on the road. Trends of warm weather and then cooler weather, accompanied by frost, could result in several layers of ice and thus create some slick conditions.
