It almost felt like the first weekend of spring in Saskatchewan.
Regina shattered a 25 year warm weather record on Saturday. The temperature reached 9 C, beating the record set in 1991 at 6.6 C.
Wynyard, Yorkton and Broadview also broke records. Wynyard got up to 4.5 C, narrowly beating the record of 4.2 C set in 1987, Yortkon hit 6.1 C, breaking the record of 4.7 C set in 1987 and Broadview reached a high of 6.1 C, breaking the record of 5 C set in 1991
The system that brought snow and freezing rain to southern Saskatchewan on Saturday has now passed through Manitoba.
“We have a lot of warm air crossing the mountains so we’ll have some warm air moving in to Regina, well to most of (the region) especially southwestern Saskatchewan with highs in the 5 to 8 degree range, so quite warm,” said Robyn Dyck, meteorologist with Environment Canada.
On Tuesday the forecast calls for four to eight centimetres of snow in Regina.
There is also the potential for freezing rain between the Battlefords and Swift Current overnight on Monday.
The rest of the week looks pretty warm.
