The climate of Saskatchewan (Canada)
Saskatchewan is exactly located between degrees of latitude and degrees of longitude thus forming a neat rectangle on the map. The province is situated in the southern part of Canada and is one of the prairie regions. Two important Natural Reserves can be found here: The Canada Shield and Interior Plains. You can go hiking, camping and fly fishing here; an ideal destination for outdoor activities. The region was named after the river that flows through it. Saskatchewan has an extreme climate. The high altitude, the central location and the lack of influence of the ocean determine the weather conditions. Saskatchewan has a continental land climate. Temperatures can be extremely high and extremely low with differences between the seasons of 60 degrees Celsius. The highest temperature on record is 45 degrees Celsius and the lowest temperature on record is -50 degrees Celsius. The West Coast Mountains prevent warm air from the ocean from reaching Saskatchewan and the winds from the polar region can blow freely. Saskatchewan gets relatively little rain. Most of the precipitation falls during the summer. Snowfall is not uncommon during the winter. Cyclones may occur during the summer .

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
