Rain with Some Hail

Most areas got some rain late in the week and over the weekend slowing field operations temporarily. Rain showers were variable with most areas receiving a couple of tenths to ¾ of an inch. Heavier storms resulted in as much as 3 inches in parts of southwestern Manitoba, near Athabasca Alberta and in the Peace Region of Alberta. A band of hail causing fairly significant damage was reported between Athabasca and Boyle, Alberta.
