November 8, 2010 — After days of record-breaking temperatures, conditions are cooling across the Prairies. There is also a risk of snow in some places.

It may have been “shorts and T-shirt” weather last week, but that won't be the case this week in many parts of the Prairies.

A cold front is sweeping across the provinces, knocking temperatures back down towards the seasonal mark. Meanwhile, a low pressure system could bring a messy mix of conditions to the Prairies over the next couple of days.

“We're looking at the potential for some snow in northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba Monday and Tuesday,” says Michelle Cassar, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “Up to 20 cm is possible in the far north, while Saskatoon and Regina could see anywhere from a trace to about 5 cm.”

In addition to snow, some people living in the Prairies will have some cool temperatures to contend with. By mid week, daytime highs will be hovering around the freezing mark.

It's a stark contrast to the temperatures that were felt across the provinces last week. Record-highs were set in all three provinces each day. On Friday, Lethbridge, Alberta, hit a daytime high of 23°C. On Saturday, Coronach soared to 21.8°C.
