Drought Stricken Areas Of Saskatchewan Finally Seeing Some Moisture

May 25, 2021

Rain started Wednesday night and continued into Thursday in the southeast part of the province in the Coronach, Weyburn and Estevan areas, while rain and snow was reported north of Lake Diefenbaker, from Leader south to Maple Creek, Consul and the Cypress Hills.

Meteorologist Drew Lerner with World Weather Inc says more precipitation is on the way with many areas being impacted by rain or snow.

"The precipitation is going to be somewhat erratically distributed but we are expecting the area coming up out of the southwest corner of the province into the northeast to see the majority of the most significant moisture and by the time we get to Saturday morning, we will have seen rain in at least the southeastern three fourths of the province."

He notes moisture totals are expected to be the greatest south of Lake Diefenbaker, from Maple Creek and Consul over to Val Marie passing through Swift Current and Moose Jaw into Regina possibly.  It should lighten up as it heads towards Hudson Bay, while the southeast will continue to see some moisture but just not as concentrated.
