Last weeks rain total amounts are trickling in after a massive rainfall event for Saskatchewan. West Central Saskatchewan hit the highest totals in all of Saskatchewan with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) confirming areas NW of Kindersley received an estimated 175-200 mm (8 inches) in a 24 hour period. Some farmers in the Smiley area reported closer to 280mm (11") with the system that pushed through Thursday into Friday, though Terri Lang with ECCC states "Looking at the 24 hour accumulation on radar and surrounding radar and there wasn't data to support anything over 200mm" in that 24 hour period.
