Aug. 28 — A ridge of high pressure is forecast to build across the Prairie provinces over the next five days. This should bring fairly mild temperatures that should prevent any chances of seeing frost.
A strong area of low pressure is forecast to develop late next week and push across the Prairies over the Labour Day long weekend. This will help to keep temperatures on the mild side over eastern areas and cloud cover over western areas should keep any frost away.
