This issue’s map shows the amount of precipitation that has fallen over the last 30 days compared to what

we’d normally expect to see. From the map you can see a good portion of agricultural Manitoba has seen

well-below-average amounts of precipitation during this period. The only region that saw near-to above-average

amounts was the far northwest.
