Today

It’s a pretty nice post election day in Saskatoon with the mercury dipping back to the freezing mark overnight before bumping up to mid-single digits by morning in the clouds.

Temperatures continued to climb up into high single digits by late morning with an expected high in low double digits today under mostly cloudy skies.

Tonight

Rain moves in tonight with a low pressure system passing by south of the city as temperatures hold in mid-single digits through the evening before falling back toward freezing overnight.

Friday

The final full work week of October finishes on a wet note with rain associated with the system continuing into the morning before tapering off later in the day.

It looks like precipitation should stay as liquid form tomorrow, but as the atmosphere cools behind the system later we may see a few flakes mix in.

Rain moves into Saskatoon Thursday night into Friday morning.

Temperatures will sit in the 3 to 4 C range throughout most of the day before falling back toward the freezing mark in the evening.

Weekend

Saturday is a tricky one to forecast right now as there is a high pressure system swinging through, however the extent of the cloud cover that will stick around is still up in the air.

Right now it looks like it’ll probably be a mostly cloudy day, however if the projection of that high pressure system strengthens, it may be enough to clear skies out enough to give us some sunshine.

The question of the weekend will be whether or not this high pressure system will clear out the clouds on Saturday.

Our daytime high is also very dependent on how much sunshine we see, but right now a high temperature in mid-single digits is a fairly safe bet for the day.

Sunday is more predictable as another low pressure system slides through keeping us in the clouds with a good chance of showers from late morning into the afternoon and a daytime high in mid-to-high single digits expected.

Halloween

The outlook for Halloween is also proving to be a tricky one.

It looks like the day will be mostly cloudy, but it’s during the all-important evening hours that a low pressure system could push in some showers that we will also continue to keep an eye on and will have a better idea as to what will materialize tomorrow.

Cooler air sinks in for Halloween before an upper ridge rebuilds itself.

The mercury looks like it’ll manifest a daytime high around four degrees, but we will keep a close eye on the day and bring you the latest updated forecast when we get a more precise idea of what will happen on Friday.

Work Week Outlook

Clouds look like they’ll clear out of the area for the first few days of November with a return to sunshine Tuesday and Wednesday and daytime highs also pushing back up through mid-single digits as an upper ridge builds in.

Significant snow at the beginning of the month followed by moderate to heavy rainfalls later on have accounted for a large portion of these impressive totals.
