West-central Saskatchewan can expect another cold and windy day. Tuesday morning's weather statement is sharing that while we could return to moderate temperatures during the day, windchill temperatures near -40 are expected to return at night.

The weather service goes on to state that the area should be back to seasonal values by Thursday. The extreme cold warning is carrying over from Monday.

The cold snap seems to be just that. According to Environment and Climate Change Canada Meteorologist Terri Lang, the region is dealing with the continued affects of an Alberta clipper weather system. 

"Common with Alberta clippers, is there is a big push of really cold air in behind. That's what is driving the system." said Lang, as people can expect the temperatures to stay around the -20 mark. "High windchills Tuesday into Wednesday, and then we will see some recovery in temperatures as the ridge of high pressure moves off, and another weather system starts moving in, bringing some milder air."

For those wondering what that next system could bring, Lang doesn't see any noticeable precipitation in the upcoming forecast. One thing to watch out for is a potential melt, and re-freeze, with Thursday's forecasted high of +5 in Kindersley.
