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.

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.
