It looks like we're in for a soggy weekend in the southeast corner of Saskatchewan. 

"For today we're looking at rain probably picking up a little bit," explained Regional Meteorologist with Environment Canada, John Paul Cragg. "We're looking at 5-10 mm of rain by the times things are done today. And then rain continuing into the evening and and then stopping then cloudy with a 30% chance of showers. But that rain could move back in to the southeast corer for the province on Sunday with periods of rain forecasted for Sunday and Sunday night. Some models are showing heavier rain moving in on Sunday, some models are showing just a light rain."

He adds that Saturday won't be that better either.

"It won't be heavy rain but we're looking at 30% chance of showers in the morning and 60% chance of showers overnight Saturday night into Sunday."

He adds that as there is potential for rain on Tuesday and that the models are showing a pretty good chance of clearing either Tuesday or Wednesday.

"It doesn't look like rain will stop until Wednesday of next week. Some models are calling for quite a bit maybe as much as 10-15 mm of precipitation on Sunday but other models are just showing some light rain Sunday. There's a low that we'll be tracking, it's going to depend on the track of that low."

However, after that, the sun will return. 

"The chance of precipitation really starts to drop early next week and then for the end of September, we're looking at fairly dry conditions."
