Turns out April showers didn’t bring any May flowers.
As a matter of fact, the flowers burned to a crisp during May here in Saskatchewan.
Environment Canada’s John Paul Cragg said according to their records and statistics, this May was the warmest in Regina’s history.
“The average temperature this May in Regina was 15.2 degrees, the average temperature is 11.3 degrees,” he said. “That beat the old record set back in 1977.”
Cragg did note this was not unusual for the area. Since the calendar turned to 2018, he said it’s been unseasonably dry.
“The dry conditions were pretty all pervasive and we saw lots of fires because of that,” he said. “Though, we have found ourselves quite nicely wetter flow pattern.”
The risk of precipitation is expected to die down next week, but throughout this one, we could still see some thundershowers or other wet conditions, said Cragg.
