Ask, and Saskatchewan shall receive.
The weather may not always be that responsive, but over the last day it has been as rain fell consistently in many areas of the province.
With an update Saturday around 5 a.m., Environment Canada said roughly 40 millimetres had fallen on Regina in a 24-hour span. Saskatoon got eight millimetres.
“You had ongoing drought conditions from last year and through the winter, so a very nice change of pace here,” said meteorologist Mark Melsness.
He said the system originated in the northwest U.S. and once it crossed the Rocky Mountains, began to take the higher levels of moisture from the atmosphere.
“Looks like the further east it went, the more moisture it had to tap into,” he explained.
Weyburn had 68 mm, but that wasn’t the area that reported the most according to Melsness. He said certain parts of Moose Mountain Provincial Park had upwards of 75 mm, or nearly three inches.
While he forecast the rain to stop in Regina by mid-morning Saturday, and in southeast sections of the province by late either the late afternoon or early evening, he predicted more moisture could be coming soon.
“We’re tracking another couple of systems that’ll be moving across during the next week,” he said.
“Stay tuned, it could lead to more watches and warnings and that kind of thing. It’s kind of a mixed bag of weather over the next week with temperatures fairly close to normal.”
