The smokey weather that's persisted in southwestern Saskatchewan the last few days is expected to take a hike today allowing for some balmy temperatures to move in for the Labour Day weekend.

Environment and Climate Change Canada is projecting daytime highs today and tomorrow around the 30 C mark, which is well above the 30-year average for this time of year at 22 C.

If either of those days hit the 30 C plateau, it could be the last time in 2023 Swift Current experiences that thanks to an upper ridge of high pressure.

"I'm not seeing super high temperatures in the forecast coming up, not to say it's not possible for Swift Current [after this weekend]," she said. 

A cold front will creep into the area on Monday dropping temperatures off to the seasonal average and the overnight period could bring the first potential frost with a low of 4 C.

"That is quite cool overnight," she said. "If there is any cloud that would help prevent the temperatures from getting too low." 

There is a chance of some precipitation accompanying the cold front, but the percentage is low.
