There simply isn’t going to be much of a break for farmers — and hot-weather-weary residents — at all in southern Saskatchewan.
Hot, dry conditions will continue all this week and according to Environment Canada, we won’t see much of a change in the temperature.
Meteorologist David Baggaley says we can take heart we’re not breaking any hot-weather records, adding even the smallest fluctuation in the thermometers gives us something to cheer about.
“So, you’re actually looking at a couple of days of near-normal temperatures,” Baggaley said. “It’s mid-week and later that you’re looking at a return the heat. A really warm spell. We’re looking at closer to 30, or even above that.”
Baggaley says unlike other areas of Saskatchewan, places like Regina will not be getting much in the way of rain.
“We can’t rule out the odd passing shower,” Baggaley said. “But no serious rain is expected in most parts of southern Saskatchewan. That’s quite in contrast to the central areas. It’s going to be very rainy today and it won’t clear up until later tomorrow.”
He says our rain gear is most likely gathering dust.
“A lot of sunshine, “Baggaley said. “And maybe worse than that. We’re going to get a fairly brisk westerly wind coming up and that only makes the conditions even worse.”
