After what's been a fairly active start to the week in terms of weather conditions, we're expecting relatively smooth sailing until the weekend.
According to Meteorologist John Paul Cragg with Environment Canada, we could see some showers in the area today, though they are not expected to be very extensive.
"Likely not gonna see much from that precipitation," Cragg said. "Looks like the strongest precipitations are gonna be on the eastern side of the province, whereas Rosetown might see some precipitation but it doesn't look right now like they'll be seeing a lot. At this point, we're forecasting the tail-end of the rain hitting the Rosetown area, so maybe a couple millimetres and not a lot more."
He said the temperature will jump around a lot this week, going from the near plus 30 temperatures we got to start off the week, to the low to mid-twenties over the weekend.
"We often see quite a bit of the swing in temperatures this time of year," Cragg said. "Not as much as during the winter but still a decent amount, depending which way the winds are blowing. Southerly wind often brings very hot humid air up from the US into Saskatchewan, whereas when we get these cold fronts sweeping by, when we get the northwest winds, the air up north is still cooler and dryer and so when we get the switch of the pattern of the flow of the atmosphere it still changes the temperature outside."
While it doesn't look likely in the current forecast that we will see rain this weekend, Cragg said there is a chance more showers could visit the area.
"There's another chance of rain for the weekend," Cragg said. "There's another low-pressure system that looks like it could pass through. Right now most of the rain is forecast through more northern reaches of the province but there is a chance that rain could get into the Rosetown area. So there is a chance you guys could see a little more rain into the weekend."
He added it's extremely difficult to predict rain in advance around this time of year, due to the rapidly developing nature of thunderstorms.
