Cypress Hills Park receives over six centimeters of rain

Cypress Hills Park has received the second highest rainfall in Saskatchewan this weekend according to a weather summary released by Environment Canada earlier this afternoon.

Cypress Hills has recorded 6.26 centimetres of rainfall on Saturday until the mid afternoon on Sunday. The soggiest location in the province was reported near Carnduff where 6.48 centimetres of rainfall has fallen over a 36 hour period.

Also in the Southwest, Val Marie has had to deal with nearly five centimetres (4.85 centimetres) of rainfall since Saturday, with just over three centimetres recorded in Eastend, Mankota received 2.68 centimetres, while Limerick has dealt with 2.95 centimetres

Environment Canada noted that the rains became embedded in the province after a Colorado low pushed a swath of rain into Southern Saskatchewan on Saturday. This area of precipitation will continue through Sunday and will persist until early Monday. An additional one to two centimetres of rain is expected over the next 24 hours in parts of saturated Southern Saskatchewan.
