This is what comes up
Scroll to the wind map at bottom
Move map over to left , look at menu top right find rain/ snow accumulations.
Maps shows 3,5 and 10 day.
It has been very close for the time I have been watching
Like any weather forecast it does change but this one usually 2-3 days ahead of most . Reply With Quote
Jul 9, 2018 | 06:05 4 The Canadian model also shows lots of rain for that area.
The same model shows way over an inch for us. I doubt it, but there is a chance of thunderstorms so the lottery is on again. I think all that will be general for us is a quarter inch Reply With Quote

If we can grab 1/2 in out this without hail that would be good .
We need a shot shortly again . Crop growth exploded here after last Saturday, but reserve is still low Reply With Quote

Jul 9, 2018 | 09:34 11 The only way rain is a lottery for me is if we miss it completely. Reply With Quote

Send it west , a huge area east and north east of here with very very dry conditions.
Some areas less than 1/2 in last 3 weeks.
Some pockets have been cooked for 10 days ..... done .
Areas getting rains west and north west continue to get rain but also hail so it’s a bugger . Not much inbetween for decent conditions. Reply With Quote
Jul 9, 2018 | 11:34 17 That strip between Lloydminster and The Battlefords getting rain again today . Reply With Quote

Our soil is about 3-4 inches of dark heavy top soil with an impenetrable gray clay under that that goes down I an not sure how far. Once the water fills up the top soil it just sits there.

I have heard it called Tisdale clay or grey wooded soils. Reply With Quote

I hear you but in my 30 years of farming never once have we been too wet.
Just simply looking for a rain in a very dry zone .
It can rain 3 in west side of river and we rarely if ever would get half of that. Reply With Quote
Jul 9, 2018 | 22:49 21 Either way it will be an interesting next 3 days in some areas ...

Jul 10, 2018 | 06:34 22 Think we could survive with a three inch rain now.
Couple years ago felt like saskfarmer and sick of the mud. Don’t think I have a right to complain about lack of rain compared to some, but we probably lost close to half our yield in the well drained land in two days the end of June.
Worst thing about rain the last couple years is it seems that there hasn’t been a general rain, and the path the clouds follow seem to repeat.
Definitely something to how lakes and rivers attract or repel the flow of clouds. Reply With Quote

Yup , that is for sure. Those two days at the end of June were not good . Reply With Quote
Jul 10, 2018 | 15:37 24 Looks like the decimal place may have been one to the right of where it should have been according to the latest forecast 🤣🤣 Reply With Quote
