Saskatoon weather outlook – June 23

Two days of heat today and tomorrow before a wet and stormy Saturday.

Saskatoon Forecast

Today

Mostly cloudy skies started the day with temperatures around 14 degrees before conditions cleared and the mercury boosted right up.

By noon Saskatoon was up at 26 degrees with humidity around 50 per cent making it feel like 29!

Humidex values will spike into the low 30s this afternoon as temperatures soar into the high 20s under sunny skies.

ChangSha Night Net

Some thunderstorms have bubbled up across north-central Saskatchewan with an upper trough over the region.

There is a slight chance of a late day shower or thunderstorm in the Saskatoon area, however it looks like the biggest risk is further north.

Tonight

There is a chance of thundershowers this evening and then we’ll see a bit of clearing overnight before a chance of showers returns into the early morning hours as we fall back to around 16 degrees.

Friday

Tomorrow looks to start off under mostly to partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of morning showers before conditions clear to mostly sunny midday and some afternoon increasing cloudiness in an unstable airmass that has the potential to develop a few showers or thunderstorms later in the day.

Temperatures will once again be hot with the mercury expected to be in the mid-20s by noon with an expected high back in the high 20s, feeling like the low 30s with humidity.

Weekend

Saturday will be a washout with an upper low swinging through with rain heavy at times and a risk of embedded thunderstorms with the potential for funnel clouds and even the possibility of a tornado in parts of Saskatchewan.

A wet and stormy Saturday is in the forecast across central Saskatchewan.

SkyTracker Weather

Winds will also be strong as the system rolls through, with sustained speeds in the 30 to 40 km/h range with gusts upwards of 50 or 60 km/h possible at times.

Temperatures will likely struggle to climb into the high teens on Saturday.

The system will clear out on Sunday, winds will ease back, rain will taper off and later in the day we might even get some clearing.

Depending on how quickly all of that happens, we may see our afternoon high climb into the low 20s late in the day.

June is typically the wettest month of the year with an average of approximately 66 millimetres falling through the month.

So far this June, only 37.7 millimetres have been reported at the Saskatoon airport, and this final weekend of the month looks like it’ll be our last chance at significant rain before the end of the month next Thursday.

Work Week Outlook

There is a chance of a shower or thunderstorm with a mix of sun and cloud on Monday and a daytime high in the mid-20s.

Then a ridge of high pressure builds back in the heat and sunshine through the middle of the work week with highs pushing into the high 20s once again.
