This issue’s weather map shows the total amount of precipitation that has fallen across the Prairies over the
30-day period ending Aug. 25. From the map you can see southern regions were fairly dry during August, with
a large area seeing less than 25 millimetres of rain. Farther north, wet conditions prevailed, especially over
northwestern parts of agricultural Manitoba and northern parts of agricultural Saskatchewan, where some
areas saw in excess of 100 mm.
