Epic air mass battle is setting up across the Prairies

This weekend will set the stage from some abnormally chilly Arctic air to migrate down from northern Canada, while Pacific air attempts to flush across sections of the Prairies. In fact, some parts of the Prairies are poised to experience their warmest temperatures of 2020.

Starting with a provincial look, Saturday has an almost comical difference in temperatures across Alberta. Temperatures in the northwest corner of the province are set to feature temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below normal, while areas south of Calgary will climb up to 5 degrees above normal.

The warmest air is set to move into Saskatchewan by Sunday, with the possibility to send temperatures well into the double digits – perhaps as warm as 15°C. Without a doubt, this will be the warmest temperatures of 2020 for parts of the province.

There are some conflicting signals with long-range modelling, but it does appears that warmer temperatures will win out for the first half of next week, especially for southern sections of the Prairies.

For those looking to safely spend some time outside, these temperatures are a much-needed breath of fresh air.
