Regina dry as a bone — so far — this May
No rain in the immediate forecast
The month of May has been noticeably lacking one quality in Regina: rain. The amount of precipitation, so far, is well below the average.
According to weather data from Environment Canada, Regina — on average — gets about 51 millimetres of precipitation over the course of 30 days in May.
So far (21 days into May 2015) Regina has recorded only 9 millimetres of rain.
Rainy days to come?
As of Thursday the immediate forecast (intro Friday and the start of the weekend) was for continued warm and sunny weather, with temperatures reaching mid-20s.
If history is a guide rainy days may be just around the corner. In May 2014, the first 18 days of the month were also very dry (just three mm). By the time the month was over, however, the amount of rain recorded was 37 millimetres.
Sunscreen or rain boots? Maybe keep both handy.
