Natalie Hasell, meteorologist with Environment Canada, said that Moose Jaw should see some benign weather for the foreseeable future.  

She said temperatures in Moose Jaw are expected to remain below normal, but no deep freezes are expected.  

Daytime highs range from minus 3 to minus 5 between today and Tuesday.  

When asked about the light snow in the forecast for Moose Jaw this week that didn’t materialize, Hasell had an explanation.  

“It looks like the edge of the precipitation for a number of systems that have been affecting mostly Alberta haven’t really made it into southern central Saskatchewan.” 

She said that the temperature range means that any clouds could be snow producers, but dry conditions could have an impact. “Maybe dry enough that if there were actual snow, it might have sublimated on the way down.” 

“We did see a light snow shower yesterday around 9 a.m., but it was very short-lived.” 

Hasell said that colder than normal temperatures and a lack of precipitation are currently expected to last through to the end of March.  

“Looking at the first week of April, the colder-than-normal signature persists for most of southern Saskatchewan, especially by the American border and the southwest corner – into Alberta.”
