This issue’s map shows the total precipitation across the Prairies during December. You can see how western
Manitoba was fairly snowy with central regions seeing little snow. Farther west both Saskatchewan and
southern and central Alberta were also fairly dry. The dry northwestern part of Alberta finally saw some much-needed
moisture during December.
