There could be some relief for parched crops in southeast Saskatchewan this weekend and next week.
Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips says temperatures are expected to be above normal but there are also showers in the forecast.
Temperatures should cool down a bit later next week, and rain showers are in the forecast.
Phillips adds June is also normally the wettest month in southern Saskatchewan.
“So there’s the hope there that June will perform like it does,” said Phillips. “It’s hope June will provide that plentiful rain that crops. need. We’ve got the temperatures, but we need the rain.”
Phillips says the long term forecast is for a warmer than normal summer but rainfall is unknown.
