Yorkton area received 42.5 millimeters of precipitation in Friday’s marathon rain | Radio GX94


Eastern Saskatchewan and western Manitoba were soggy on Friday as a low pressure system brought lots of rain, some heavy in some areas.

Here are some areas of Saskatchewan and their precipitation totals from yesterday (Friday): Yorkton 42.5mm, Broadview 31.4mm, Wynyard 47.4mm, Indian Head 34.1mm and Hudson’s Bay 24 .2 mm.

In western Manitoba: Shoal Lake recorded 13mm, The Pas 14mm, Dauphin 30mm and Swan River 56.4mm.

“Typically, you see about 60mm of rain for the whole month of May,” precision meteorologist Paul Janus Jr. said of Yorkton-area rainfall totals compared to the monthly average. “So to see him in the middle of the month to get two-thirds the amount of a 30-year average is pretty incredible.”

“In fact, the last 7 of the 14 days we had in early May were rainy,” added Janus Jr.

However, he says the forecast for the rest of the weekend will be dry.

According to the latest precision weather forecast, tonight (Saturday) the cloudiness will dissipate with lows of plus 2, tomorrow (Sun) partly to mostly sunny and highs of 15, and tomorrow evening mostly clear with possible freezing and low from zero. For tonight, tomorrow and tomorrow night, there is no chance of precipitation.
