Many will be keeping a close eye on the forecast ahead of the May long weekend. The week is going to bring with it heat, precipitation, and some below average temperatures with nighttime lows nearing zero. 

Most of the moisture and cool temperatures will occur in the middle of the week before returning to seasonal daytime highs on the weekend. 

After missing out on rain from the large system that moved through the Southern and Central parts of the province late last week, the West Central region could see up to 20mm fall by Thursday explains meteorologist for Environment and Climate Change Canada, Terri Lang. 

  “We do have a weather system moving through over the next couple days. It’s a weak trough of low pressure and what it's going to do is set off some showers, maybe isolated thunder showers, but they’re going to be pretty spotty, nothing really organized. However, there is a more organized system forecasted to come through late Wednesday into Thursday which looks like more organized showers and rain.” 

So far, the West central part of Saskatchewan has received between 5.3 and 7 millimeters in the month of May.
