July skies provide the most rain since 2016

With just over a week left in July, Regina and the area have seen some wetter conditions compared to the last couple of years.

So far this month, 76.7 millimetres had fallen, almost three times the amount last year when Regina received only 27.3 millimetres.

Terri Lang, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada, said that the rest of the summer shouldn’t be as wet, but thunderstorms are always unpredictable.

“As we saw with the storm on July 19th, just getting under one slow-moving thunderstorm, that’s a varied chance, but it can certainly happen, so completely unpredictable when it comes to thunderstorms.”

She said for the upcoming Saskatchewan Roughriders game on Sunday; she said it should be a nice day to enjoy some football.

“There’s a ridge of high-pressure building, it looks sunny, doesn’t look like a chance of showers or thundershowers, looks quite pleasant, the temperature is not outrageously hot, and not on the cool side, looks like a goldilocks kind of day.”
