Cold air injects in to start the first weekend of 2019 and then snow returns.
-13 is what it felt like to start the first Friday of 2019 as temperatures dipped back to -9 with fog patches reducing visibility to three kilometres at times.
Mostly cloudy skies through the morning helped heat us up to -4 heading into the noon hour as the fog fizzled.
A wave of light snow is slated to slide through during the afternoon as we warm up to a daytime high just shy of the freezing mark.
Snow lingers into the evening before easing overnight as conditions cool into minus double digits.
-18 is around what it’ll feel like with wind chill to start the weekend Saturday morning under mostly cloudy skies, which will stick around all day before clearing in the evening.
An arctic high pressure system sliding by to the northeast will keep things cool though, with an afternoon high only making it to around -7 and wind chills stuck in the minus teens all day.
An arctic high pressure system will draw in cooler air on Saturday.
The next system is on deck for Sunday and will bring some snow early in the day that may linger into the afternoon before some late day clearing is possible.
Temperatures will also spike back up to finish the first weekend of 2019 with the mercury making it back up toward the freezing mark in the afternoon as a gusty southeasterly wind kicks in.
Snow is likely in the Saskatoon area Sunday morning.
Work week outlook
Snow is likely to linger into Monday as cold air gets pumped back in before sunshine returns on Tuesday only to be displaced by another round of clouds with a risk of snow to finish off the week.
Daytime highs will bound back and forth between minus single digits and minus double digits until later in the week when they cool down below seasonal.
