Thu Aug 21, 2014 10:53 AM CDT Rainfall during the past few days has fallen on some of the dry portions of the Canadian Prairies bolstering soil moisture levels and bringing needed moisture to help filling crops. The downside is that more rain is expected through the weekend and some areas may see too much across the east, slowing or stopping developing harvest operations.
Thu Aug 14, 2014 10:27 AM CDT Overall, Western Canada is still seeing good weather for maturing crops and early harvest. However, the warm-to-hot, dry weather is starting to dry out top soil across an increasingly large portion of the region and more rain is needed in some areas to carry crops to maturity.
