Thu Jun 25, 2015 10:57 AM CDT Even though it is summer, we are seeing a revival of a weather pattern we are quite familiar with from last winter. The result for Western Canada will be more dry weather along with a return of above-normal temperatures.
Thu Jun 18, 2015 09:49 AM CDT Despite some increase in showers across the Prairies during the past week there remains inequality in the amounts of rain falling across the region. Some areas remain very dry while modest help has come to others.
Thu Jun 11, 2015 10:39 AM CDT The dry weather pattern that has slowed emergence of crops through southwest Canadian areas may be easing somewhat. However, there is still some uncertainty in this outlook.
Thu Jun 4, 2015 10:44 AM CDT Dry weather has been fairly persistent across the Canadian Prairies this spring leading to increased areas of short soil moisture and a slowing of crop establishment and development. Some frost damage to the early-emerged oilseed crop in some areas last week has forced some replanting.
Thu May 28, 2015 10:11 AM CDT Dryness continues to take over more territory across the Canadian Prairies as we move through late spring. While conditions are turning drier, farmers are far ahead of the seeding progress dates that we normally see across this region. Last week's snow and cold conditions across Manitoba forced some replanting of canola.
Thu May 21, 2015 10:31 AM CDT Dry conditions have been expanding for some portions of the Prairies during the spring while other areas have seen an upswing in precipitation during May. There remains concern that a developing El Nino could affect summer rainfall across the Prairies.
