A series of severe thunderstorm watches and warnings have been issued by Environment Canada for a wide swath of Saskatchewan with the forecast not only calling for possible stormy weather into Monday, but rain and a lot of it over the next two days.
Environment Canada says a slow moving low pressure system moving across the province will bring significant rain Sunday night and Monday with up to 30 millimeters in some areas and another 40-50 by the time the system moves out of the province on Tuesday.
The weather office adds although there is some uncertainty in the exact area and intensity of the heaviest rains, 48 hour total rainfall amounts, in some areas, could exceed 100 mm with this event.
That is the case in Estevan where people were being asked to stay off the roads Sunday night after over 4 inches of rain or 100 millimeters came down with more expected causing flooding.
That rain has forced some residents of Estevan out of their homes.
The city issued a State of Emergency Sunday after several inches of rain came down.
There is a a low pressure system stalling over the southern part of the province.
Toonie size hail was also reported in the city.
Power was also out for a short time, but SaskPower repaired the problem quickly.
Special weather statements in Regina have ended as of Monday morning, however, the weather office warns of significant rainfall over the next few days.
