In last week’s edition of the Triangle News, we reported record breaking rainfall in the area, and we have more to add!
According to Coronach’s Andy Giraudier, on Tuesday, June 7, Coronach received 14mm of rain and 40mm more on Wednesday, making the two-day total 54 mm. Add that to May’s total of 155 and we have 209mm or 8.36 inches in a few weeks.
This year Coronach and areas all over Saskatchewan have received record-breaking rainfall, more than they’ve seen in years in such a short period of time.
One change we can see because of this increase in rainfall is the Willow Bunch Lake. In recent years, the Willow Bunch Lake, which has been bone dry for decades, has begun to show more and water. Each year the water level have risen a bit more.
For the ducks that are enjoying the water in the lake, all the rain is a great. But, unfortunately for area farmers the rain has kept them from getting this year’s crop in the ground.
Residents were happy to see the temperatures come up a bit this week though. The temperature reached a high of 22.5 degrees on Tuesday, with a low of only 10 degrees, but it was short lived. On Wednesday June 8 the mercury only got to a high of 11 degrees and dipped to a low of 4 degrees overnight.
