Sporadic in nature, April showers still lived up to its billing this year. After many areas received trace amounts, the amount of moisture already collected this April has the situation already off to a better start.

Environment Canada shared the following statistics. The following totals include any rain and melted snow, and are based off the weather stations in the region throughout the month of April.  Judging by the numbers, the rain was spread out fairly even throughout the area. 

  • Kindersley - 27.2 mm
  • Rosetown - 26.6 mm
  • Outlook - 22.1 mm
  • Scott (Biggar) - 21.9 mm
  • Leader 21.5 mm

The rainy stretch to end the month carried into the start of May, as Environment Canada shared the following amounts for May 1. Outlook surpassed their April totals, while others missed out on the full extent of the showers.

  • Outlook - 23.8 mm
  • Rosetown - 14.2 mm
  • Scott (Biggar) - 7.6 mm
  • Kindersley - 6.1 mm
  • Leader - 3.2 mm

Those numbers should have no problem climbing throughout the rest of the month, with another system expected after the weekend.
