After a thunderstorm moved through Weyburn last night, bringing around 10 millimetres of rain along with loud, wall shaking thunder and lightning that lit up the night sky, more precipitation could be on the way into the region.

“It’s going to be kind of an on-and-off, hit-and-miss type of thing,” explained Terri Lang, a meteorologist with Environment Canada. “It’s good news, as farmers are wanting the moisture to be coming through so you guys will be able to benefit from that.” 

The forecast for the rest of the day, and into the weekend is calling for chances of rain and thunderstorms, before things begin to settle down early next week. Daytime highs are also expected to start to climb as the week goes on, with temperatures by the end of the month getting up into the 30° range.
