Beginning Monday afternoon, residents in the Moose Jaw area and around the province heard the sounds of thunder roaring, periodic lightning, and some heavy rainfall.

Environment Canada Meteorologist, Terri Lang says that the Moose Jaw area only recorded 16.8 millimetres of rain, but other parts of the province received much more.

“Just northwest of Moose Jaw came in with 29.0 mm, up to about 8:00 a.m. this morning,” says Lang. “Other places; Davin around 65 mm, Weyburn 55 mm, Limerick 41 mm, Regina is varying quite a bit. The south end of the province seems to be around 45 mm, but we’ve had reports in the north end of over 80 mm. Craven 35 mm, Strasburg around 48 mm, Swift Current 28 mm, and closer to the Alberta border around 31 mm.”

Lang adds that this rainfall is the result of a northern Montana storm system that scooted across the Canada/US border and into southern Saskatchewan.

Heading into Tuesday, Lang notes that the storm system will continue to make its way across the province.

“It’s going to be highly variable again because it’s going to be showers and thundershowers. Moose Jaw is just on the back end of the main weather system, but the air remains unstable in behind so expect showers and thundershowers on and off again.”
