The current above-seasonal weather is set to be interrupted by a cold burst following the weekend.

Environment Canada is forecasting that the system, called an Alberta clipper, will be followed by a cold front that will hit the southeast.

Meteorologist Terri Lang says the southeast will escape the biggest impacts from the clipper.

"A lot of the northern green belt and through central Saskatchewan, there's going to be some snow, some blowing snow. For the most part, the South will escape the impacts of the storm. It'll be quite windy, risk of freezing rain, maybe a little bit of snow, but it doesn't look like much will fall in the southeast corner."

"There's such a big push of cold arctic air in behind this system, which makes it a true Alberta clipper that we'll see the temperatures really nosedive in the afternoon when the winds snap around to the northwest and become quite gusty. So once that arctic air starts moving in, that's what's going to cause the real dip in temperatures."

The cold is expected to be shortlived, partially lifting Tuesday before returning to above-seasonal averages on Wednesday.

Lang says that the overnight lows will be a shock for people who have been enjoying the warm weather lately.

"The temperatures are going to dip towards the mid-minus 20s and with the winds, probably looking at wind chills closer to minus 30. So it's going to be a bit of a shocker after some mild temperatures, nothing out of the ordinary for February in Saskatchewan. So just that reminder not to put away the parkas and shovels quite yet, we still got a length of time to go before we really get into spring weather."

While the southeast will be clear of any major snow, Lang advises that people watch out if they're heading north or south.

"Anybody planning to travel on Monday should make sure they look at the weather forecasts and the road conditions before heading out on Monday and just be prepared to maybe postpone those plans or try and travel ahead of the storm just because it's going to make travel quite difficult in other parts of southern Saskatchewan."
