Temperatures around freezing, clear skies, and light winds have created a risk of frost for Tuesday night into Wednesday morning in central Alberta.
But while the chill is in the air, it looked even more like winter in recent days. The unofficial start to summer this past long weekend didn't feel summer-like at all in many parts of the Prairies.
The weekend got off to a snowy start in Alberta. Residents in Grande Prairie were digging out from 18cm of snow on Friday. And around 10cm fell in Cypress Hills, along the Alberta-Saskatchewan border. Conditions improved to fairly seasonal on Tuesday.
The same could not be said for Saskatchewan, though. The region received a much-needed soaking over the weekend and Tuesday was another windy and rainy day with temperatures in the single digits.
The winds have been so powerful in the province that they prompted a warning from police. Truck drivers were told to be extremely cautious after gusts blew a semi-trailer rig right off the road near Kenaston.
Meanwhile, it's thunderstorms that got people talking in Manitoba. Storms rumbled through the southern part of the province Monday night, bringing wind gusts as well as heavy rainfall.
And for areas farther north, freezing rain is the story late Tuesday. The good news is that as temperatures climb above freezing into Wednesday morning, it will transition into just rain.
