It has been warm and dry for Weyburn in the first half of May. While the average daytime high for the month has been just 21.1°, we have seen some near-record breaking highs so far, including Tuesday’s scorching 31°, just shy of the record of 32° from 1917.

The forecast for Wednesday isn’t looking any cooler, with a high of 28° expected. This will be close to the record of 30° from 2006.

While there is some rain expected in the next 96 hours, it may not be very much. So far, Weyburn has received just 4.4 millimetres of rain this month, well below the average, and leading to a fire ban being implemented across the city and through most of the rural municipalities in the area.

Some long-range forecasts show things could improve for those hoping for rain by the end of the month. As with many long-range forecasts in the summer, though, it could rapidly change.
