Environment Canada has issued a special weather warning for Regina and southern Saskatchewan.
There’s a large, slow moving storm system moving towards the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border this weekend.
By the end of Thursday, people can expect 15-25 mm of rain. Rain will become more widespread over southern Saskatchewan overnight through Friday as the storm system moves towards the province. Rain is expected to continue Saturday, locally heavy at times, before the rain tapers off from west to east Sunday.
Most of southern Saskatchewan should be seeing 30-50 mm of rain by late Saturday with localized amounts of 50-80 mm possible over portions of southwest Saskatchewan northeast towards the Hudson Bay region. Rainfall warnings may be issued for areas that see 50 mm or more within 24 hours or 75 mm or more within 48 hours.
Strong northwest winds are also expected to develop behind this storm system Saturday into Sunday, with gusts of 60-70 km/h possible.
