Fall-like conditions will invade the southwest for the next trio of days. Environment and Climate Change Canada is projecting daytime highs for the region that could reach double digits above the freezing mark on Tuesday and Wednesday. Even Thursday is expected to be mild at 6 C. The warm temperatures can be attributed to a change in wind direction and the Jet Stream. "We have a weather system that's going to pass through to the north so that puts the southwest into a southwesterly flow, which we know is a chinook type of flow," said Terri Lang, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada. Swift Current's 30-year average daytime high for early December is -5 C, coupled with overnight lows of -15 C. The latter mark, the city and region haven't experienced much of, with the temperature only dipping to -15 once, on October 30. "[It] will be running absolutely well above those average," she said. The December 5 daytime high record for Swift Current seems very much out of reach at 20 C set in 1939, however, December 6 is potentially attainable at 12.2 C set the same year. "All the record temperatures in December for Swift Current are almost all in double digits, there are a few exceptions," she said. While the ground is currently lightly dusted with snow and ice, that is expected to clear up quickly on Tuesday and Wednesday. Icy conditions could return Thursday with rain and snow forecasted throughout the day and night. "It looks like a bit of a messy system coming through," she said. "It doesn't look like anything too major [for precipitation]."
