Swift Current is getting ready to slide back into season norms, which means a colder front of air moving back into the Southwest. 

The wind will be shifting, coming out of the northwest starting tomorrow. That will bring the high for the day down to -1 C, with a low of -14 C for Thursday morning. 

Warning Preparedness Meteorologist for Environment and Climate Change Canada, Natalie Hazel, indicated that by Friday morning, the low for the day will be multitudes below the seasonal norm. 

"Typically we would see a high of -2 C this time of year and a low early morning temperature of -12 C," said Hazel. "Thursday night, Friday morning, -16 C is the coldest temperature we have in the current forecast."

After that, the weather may peak to +1 C over Saturday and Sunday, before settling into -2 C highs for the next week. Folks can expect that to continue into December when the cool plunge for winter will be well underway. 

Hazel recommends folks use today to get anything they need to do outside before the cold sets in. Things like yard work, clean up, and repairs around the home. 

"Also, if you haven't updated your emergency kit yet this year," said Hazel. "It's never too late to do it either, and if you don't have an emergency kit, you can go to getprepared.gc.ca and follow the instructions."
