A warm-up is in store for the weekend, at least, compared to what we've been experiencing.

Though February was one of the coldest months many southeast residents can remember experiencing, it looks like the worst may be over. Environment Canada Meteorologist Terri Lang said the polar vortex that swept through the region seems to have passed, although they can only see about 10 days into the future, forecast-wise. mooseinpark submittedThe moose were spotted in River Park Saturday morning by Ellen Quita.

"We're not seeing the return of that polar vortex situation. We can see where the polar vortex is sitting, like the really, really cold air, and it doesn't look like it's going to spin back down, thankfully, at least not for the next 10 days," shared Lang. 

Weyburn residents could feel the change in the weather yesterday when the temperature soared to -2 degrees Celsius in the afternoon. People could be seen out enjoying the warmer temperatures throughout the day, with many taking advantage of the mild weather to go for a walk or hit the toboggan run. The warm-up seemed to bring out the wildlife as well, as two moose could be seen walking along the Souris River and Highway 39 early Friday evening. The pair were then spotted again in River Park Saturday morning.

As for the coming week, temperatures are expected to go above zero, with sunny skies and a high of 4 degrees forecasted for Tuesday.
