Another douse of rainfall could be on the way for southwestern Saskatchewan starting tonight.

Environment and Climate Change Canada pegs the chances for moisture in the region overnight at 70 per cent and thunderstorm activity might be included.

Terri Lang, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada, said this type of stormy weather is typical for Saskatchewan throughout June and July, aside from the drought conditions the province has experienced the last couple of years.

"We're not expecting tornadoes but thunderstorms do have the capability of producing tornadoes so we do want people to have that in the back of their minds," she said. "Also keep in mind that its damaging winds that are more common than tornadoes and they tend to do more damage. With these thunderstorms we always ask people to have a way to receive alerts and if they receive alerts, act."

The region was hit with consistent showers on Monday that produced around two inches of precipitation in Swift Current and upwards of 4 inches in Ernfold and Lac Pelletier.

"Those are probably the highest totals we've seen over the last couple of days, that's kind of where the system was going through," she said. "The heavier showers were definitely over the southwest area."

A big trough of low pressure has been camped out over most of southern Saskatchewan for the last week that's ushered in rainfall a few times. Lang doesn't expect that system to break down until Sunday night or Monday when warmer weather will reach the southwest via a ridge of high pressure.

"We are getting a little bit of heat, so that and the moisture in the ground are really starting to fuel the storms," she explained. "So we keep going with this type of pattern."
