Breaking a record set in 1902, Weyburn set new records for rainfall yesterday. In total, 38.6mm fell on the Opportunity City. This shattered the old mark of 25.9mm, which had stood for 115 years. The rains couldn’t have come at a better time, either.
May was one of the driest on record in Weyburn, as the city only received 6.2mm of rain over 31 days. June didn’t start off much better, with only 2.3mm falling in total. One would have to go back to April 19th for the last significant rainfall in Weyburn, when 11.9mm of rain fell.
The cooler temperatures expected over the next few days could help bring a little more precipitation to the region. There is a chance of rain every day for the next few days, with the sunshine and normal temperatures returning to the region early next week.
