Some isolated thunderstorms hit southeastern Saskatchewan at times over the weekend, though they didn't bring as much moisture as the area can expect to received on Monday.

An Estevan monitoring station recorded 5.8 millimetres of rain on the weekend. One near Weyburn measured about a half millimetre. And one near Milestone posted the highest total in the region, with 7.8 millimetres.

Environment Canada is calling for 10-15 millimetres of rain Monday, beginning around noon, and another five to 10 Monday night.

Meteorologist Eric Dykes said this comes from a "very unsettled pattern."

"This isn't just akin to what's happening in southeastern Saskatchewan. It's basically prairie-wide, and has been for the last few days... We have a system that's pushing up from the Dakotas into Manitoba, and there's a trough of low pressure that's going to hang back into southern Saskatchewan and give some shower activity to your neck of the woods as well."

The skies should clear briefly on Tuesday, before rain returns overnight and into Wednesday.

Thursday has a 40-per-cent chance of showers, before a lot more moisture potentially hits.

"The rain returns sometime on Thursday night, perhaps into Friday," said Dykes. "It's a little bit hard to pinpoint exactly the timing and exactly the amounts for this system at the end of the week. However, it's one that bears watching. It will be something akin, if not, perhaps even stronger, to the system that will be coming through today."

Dykes said thunderstorms aren't very likely in the region for the next few days. He said it's tough at the moment to tell how likely they are for the end of the week.
