Southwestern Saskatchewan has finally received some much-needed precipitation with more potentially on the way.

The weather station at the Swift Current Airport recorded 13.4 millimetres yesterday, which is nearly half of May's total to date of 27.6 millimetres.

"This type of pattern looks like we're going to be in it for a bit," Environment and Climate Change Meteorologist Terri Lang said. "Better chances of everybody cashing in on the rain showers just because of how the pattern is."

Another weather system is expected to reach the southwest tomorrow from the south. 

"Again with these southerly systems they've got a lot of moisture with them and warm air," she said. "Of course, we know warm air can hold a lot more moisture than cold air."

Models are projecting rain showers for the region in the morning that may morph into a thunderstorm in the afternoon.

"The way the pattern is, it looks pretty good for producing some good amounts of rain," she said. "The shower nature of this kind of precipitation makes it hard to pin a number on it."

Lang believes the system could produce anywhere from 5 to 20 millimetres, depending on how localized the showers become.
