Friday night's storm that ripped through southeast Saskatchewan practically rivaled the final week of May, and the month of May for that matter, when it comes to rainfall totals.
47 millimeters fell on Estevan within a 24 hour span, most of that during the storm, in addition to another 16 just prior. That amounts to 63.4 millimeters in the past couple days of weather. Other localities saw even more than that. According to Environment Canada's Mark Melsness, it's been a lot of rain over the past couple days.
"The most that I've seen is out to the west of Maryfield, between Maryfield and Moose Mountain. They're showing over five inches in the last day and a half or so, that would be about 125 plus millimeters out that way."
He added that the rain is expected to taper of by noon on Saturday, the skies to clear, and the sunshine to return on Sunday.
The storm also included wind gusts approaching 100 klicks, which resulted in notable damage to trees, property and buildings. Close and accurate lightning strikes, along with the wind, played with the power and kept crews on their toes.
