It's the first day of fall and we can expect cooler weather than normal. Terri Lang with Environment Canada explains, "Certainly for people that are driving in and around southern Saskatchewan. There is snow being reported mostly across the northern grain belt, through Saskatoon, Kindersley, North Battleford, Lloydminster and that's going to progress eastward towards the Yorkton area, along the Yellow Head highway, the number 16."

"Tomorrow we are going to get another impulse of precipitation through the Estevan area and should fall mostly as rain, not too much in the amount expected. Farther north, if people are out and about, they should know that they might be running into some snow. Most of the snow is expected to melt and not accumulate and will be gone soon. Just an FYI for people that are driving and of course it's the weekend so a lot of people are."

"Next week the sun might come out, it's trying, we're just in that same pattern that is keeping us very cool, running way below average for this time of year, and wet as well. I know the farmers appreciate the moisture because it's collateral for next season. With respect to temperatures trying to rebound a little bit, but still struggling. Averages for this time of year, 30-year averages are around 17 for highs and I think we are going to struggle to get into the low teens over the next week. The pattern doesn't show any signs of shifting either. There's a ridge building over British Columbia, but it doesn't seem to be progressing eastward, so I think we are going to be stuck in this pattern for a while."

She adds, "be prepared physically and mentally to see the snow as your travelling north, it's a bit of a shock I think, the first snow of the season a little early. It's normally in October but just so they know that they will run into snow."
