2019s biggest streak of heat so far is on the way!
-17 is what it felt like Friday morning with wind chill as temperatures slid back into minus double digits by a few degrees to finish the week.
Mostly cloudy skies stuck around through the morning as the region warmed into minus single digits before noon.
The mercury is expected to make it up toward the freezing mark for an afternoon high with a chance of flurries as a trough swings through.
The risk of flurries continues into Friday evening before skies clear out overnight and temperatures tumble back into minus double digits.
-16 is around what it’ll feel like with wind chill Saturday morning under sunny skies that will stick around all day long.
With the sensational sunshine will come some significant warming with an expected afternoon high around 2 C.
Lovely sunshine returns on Saturday as a ridge of high pressure builds in.
St. Patrick’s Day Sunday
St. Patrick’s Day will start out on a sunny note, but a push of Pacific moisture will bring in some clouds during the afternoon.
Despite kicking off the day in minus double digits, the mercury should make it up above freezing by around 3 C, which means lots of melting snow and sloppy roads during the day.
A major upper ridge builds in the biggest streak of heat Saskatchewan has seen in 2019 so far.
Work week outlook
The biggest heat streak so far for 2019 floods Saskatchewan for the third week of March as a massive upper ridge of high pressure builds in.
