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.
