For those sick of the cold, Environment Canada’s senior climatologist has some good news — but you’ll just have to wait for it.
According to meteorologist David Phillips, temperatures are expected to be several degrees colder than normal for the next two weeks with single-digit highs.
However, Phillips told Brent Loucks on 650 CKOM Tuesday morning that relief will soon follow.
“We see a warm-up occurring mid-month but you’re going to have to endure this brutal winter-like weather,” Phillips said.
Phillips said during September, Saskatoon saw its coldest afternoon in 53 years and its second-coldest in 126.
He added temperatures dipped below freezing during nine days — normally that only happens four times.
His last bit of good news: fall conditions are not a sign of what’s to come in the winter.
“So don’t think that winter has come early and you’re in for the long haul. This could be kind of a real oddity of sorts.”
