According to the Environment Canada website, so far this summer the Saskatoon area has seen below-average rainfall in summer, 41.7 mm of rain in June and 17.7 mm of moisture in July. The hottest temperature thus far was on July 2 when Saskatoon hit 40 C.

The majority of rain has been from scattered thunderstorms — the main source of moisture for many areas across the province this summer.

Environment Canada has issued another heat warning for the Saskatoon area for the next couple of days.

Environment Canada added there is a chance of rain in the extended forecast.
