If it seems like a wet June – it’s because it is. According to Environment Canada, central Saskatchewan has already received more rain than it usually gets for the entire month of June.
John Paul Cragg, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, says the average for June is around 60 millimeters of rain.
So far, he says, the Saskatoon region has received around 85 millimeters.
“It looks like we could easily get another 15-20 mm by the time this weekend is done,” he said. “So we’ll be looking at well over 100 mm of rain…”
Some areas are even wetter. A region north of Prince Albert received more rain last weekend that it usually gets in a month.
