This issue’s map shows the total amount of precipitation since April 1 compared to the historical records. I have to admit, in the five-plus years I’ve been writing about the weather I don’t remember seeing a map like this. Nearly all three Prairie provinces are in the extremely high range, with a relatively huge region showing record wetness.
