Weather Update

Posted on June 30, 2014 · Posted in News

There has been significant rainfall accumulations in the south eastern part of the province in the last 24 hours. Saskatoon and Moose Jaw has not received more than a few mm while Regina and Yorkton received over 3 inches. A number of towns have issued a state of emergency, with many roads and highways closed or detoured due to flooding including the #1 Trans-Canada west of Grenfel. Regina is on a water use restriction at the moment (no showering or unneeded toilet use) until they deal with the excess water. There will be yield loss issues east of the Saskatoon – Moose Jaw line, but west remained relatively unscathed. The west central part of the province did receive an inch or so in the Rosetown- Kindersley region, but it shouldn’t affect crops like it did in the east. More rain is forecast for today for most of the province,( 5-15 mm) with sun and warmer temperatures come tomorrow through to the end of the week.
Here’s hoping the rain will subside.”
