Southern Saskatchewan could see some brief relief from this hot, dry weather.
Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips says a chance of thunderstorms Tuesdday could provide short-term relief for parched fields.
But he says the temperature will turn hot and dry later this week, with highs again in the low 30’s.
“It isn’t good news,” Phillips said. “But one can be hopeful the situation can turn.”
- Rain, hail, high winds batter Saskatoon; more unsettled weather forecast for southern & central Sask.
Phillips says parched farmland needs a slow steady rain instead of thunderstorms.
He points out rainfall in Regina is only 40 percent of average this summer.
