After the recently pleasant fall weather, mother nature will soon be bringing on winter.
 
Following Wednesday's (Oct.31) trick-or-treating, November looks to be bringing snow back to the capital region, including Fort Saskatchewan.
 
"The possibility is there of upwards of 5cm of snow by the end of the day Saturday," said Environment Canada meteorologist Blaine Lowry.
 
According to Environment Canada's short-range forecast, the snow will start either Thursday or Friday and continue on lightly until Monday.
 
Lowry added that those constant 20-40 km/h winds aren't expected to slow down either.
 
"With that wind coming in from the northwest, that does bring in some of that colder air from the north."
 
Night time lows are expected to be around -3 C this weekend without the windchill, but things will significantly cool off as we reach the second week in November.
 
An early look at the highs for next week according to The Weather Network are in the -2 C to -4 C range.
