The second week of April will start off on a high note for some Prairie residents.

Mild temperatures returned to southern portions of the region Friday, and that trend is forecast to continue into the long-range.

"A more aggressive warm-up is expected Tuesday into Wednesday across southern Alberta and Saskatchewan," says Weather Network meteorologist Gina Ressler.

"Given the right conditions, we may see our first 20-degree temperature of the year."

Current models suggest that many communities will see temperatures hovering into the high teens.

"People living close to the Alberta/Saskatchewan border will likely see the warmest of the weather," says Weather Network meteorologist Matt Grinter.

By Thursday, temperatures are expected to return to more seasonal levels.
