For the second night in a row portions of the Southwest have been placed under a frost warning by Environment Canada.

"Cold air will continue to linger in Saskatchewan tonight and frost is expected to develop in the northern grainbelt and extreme southwest portions of the province," the warning states. "Temperatures are expected to dip below freezing overnight as winds become calm and skies clear under a ridge of high pressure."
