Things are starting to dry up again after a wet start to the week. Environment Canada reported between 9-20 millimetres of rain in the west-central region, but a clear day on Wednesday started to dry things up nicely.

Sunshine joined the clear skies, and it has been hard at work with Wednesday and Thursday both providing highs of around 20 degrees. The heat is only expected to increase into the weekend with Friday looking at a high of around 25, and Saturday through Monday in between the 22-24 degree range. 

Environment and Climate Change Canada meteorologist Terri Lang gave an explanation behind the warm weather.

"We do have a big ridge of high-pressure that is building-in from the west, which is typical for this time of year," shared Lang. "Finally getting to some more seasonal type of temperatures. Actually climbing to above seasonal as we go towards the weekend."

Lang expects the next few days to dry the ground out nicely for any producers headed back in the field. Getting hours in this weekend will be important, as Lang shared the potential for rain once again early next week.

"Not much chance of rain, probably until I think Monday, when we see another low-pressure system go through." said Lang, teasing the possibility of thundershowers. 

Lang shared that insight despite the scattered system not currently being on the long-term forecast. Soak up the sun this weekend, because gloomy weather could be back before you know it.
