The weekend saw a little bit of everything when it comes to the weather.  

On Saturday along, we had sunshine, temperatures reaching up to 27°, cloudy skies, showers, and a thunderstorm. Father’s Day on Sunday was windy, with cooler temperatures, and even a sun shower.  

This week, we can again expect a little bit of everything when it comes to the weather, starting with a significant amount of rain today.  

Stephen Berg is a meteorologist with Environment Canada. He said some parts of southeast Saskatchewan could see more than 30 millimetres of rain over the course of the next 36 hours.  

“It depends on how the showers are arranged,” Berg said of what we can expect in terms of rainfall in Weyburn. “Weyburn might get slightly less, but it’s too difficult to say right now. It looks like a nice, general soaking rain over the Estevan-Weyburn-Carlyle area.” 

The system coming through will also bring lower temperatures. The daytime high expected for today is 15°, with things getting down to as low as 4° tomorrow night. Then, while there is sunshine expected Wednesday and Thursday, more rain could be coming after that. 

Berg noted a frontal system is going to be moving in next, and while the early prognostications have it largely over the Dakotas and Minnesota, south of the border, that doesn’t mean it won’t leave the southeast part of the province unaffected.  

“Looks to be fairly unsettled in terms of showers,” Berg continued. “That does not look to be necessarily thunderstorm-y yet, but we’ll have to wait and see where that goes.”
