Saskatoon is getting a less-than-gentle reminder from Mother Nature about how December should feel.
After weeks of above-seasonal temperatures, the Bridge City will have to deal with cooler values and high winds for the next few days.
Tuesday’s high is only expected to reach -16 C, down from -5 C a day earlier.
The wind will take another bite out of the air as gusts reach 50 km/h, creating wind chill factors of -30 C throughout the day.
The weather won’t be much better Wednesday. While the wind will die down to 20 km/h, there’s a good chance of flurries with a high of -14 C and wind chill of -27 C.
People going outdoors are advised to wear layers and cover exposed skin to prevent illness and frostbite.
Temperatures are expected to range from -17 C on Thursday to -25 C Sunday.
