There are many farmers that had no problem with the cool, wet weather over the long weekend as parched fields got some much needed moisture from border to border.
Environment Canada’s Terri Lang says Saskatchewan received a good soaking with 30 to 50 millimeters being reported across a very wide swath with Birch Hills and Waseca seeing the most at around 55.
She says it is moisture that was definitely needed, but more would be welcome.
‘April was very, very dry for most regions as was March.” Lang said. “The same can be said for the winter so while the precipitation is very welcome, more is needed.”
As for the Regina area, Lang says just over 30 millimeters was reported at the airport, but places around the city saw 37.
