This week’s map shows the departure from average precipitation amounts over the last 30 days (mid-October
through to mid-November). The eastern and central Prairies remained dry during this period, with most
regions recording 10 to as much as 30 millimetres below the long-term average. Alberta was the wet spot
during this period, with a good portion of the agricultural region seeing near-average amounts, and some
areas seeing as much as 30 to 40 mm above average.
