After a couple of warmer days, temperatures in Moose Jaw are expected to drop starting on Wednesday.

The daytime high for Wednesday is zero, with the temperature falling to minus 10 on Thursday with an overnight low of minus 18.

"There's a bit of cold front that's coming down from a ridge of high pressure from the Northwest Territories and the Yukon that's pushing quite a bit of cold air down towards the central Prairies and southern Prairies," explained Stephen Berg, meteorologist with Environment Canada. "That will start getting into your area Wednesday evening. That should start to let up by Saturday morning. The temperatures will be somewhere between five and ten degrees below the average for this time of year. By the weekend, temperatures should return to around normal give or take a couple of degrees."

Berg notes we could see some minor flurry activity on Wednesday but nothing significant.

Daytime highs are expected to creep back up to around freezing for the weekend.

The average high for this time of year is around minus 1.
