Historically dry conditions hit several Sask. communities in May

It’s no surprise that Saskatchewan is dealing with so many wildfires as many communities are currently experiencing historically dry conditions.

According to Environment and Climate Change Canada, the first two weeks of May were the driest on record for this time of year for Prince Albert, Saskatoon, Yorkton, and Meadow Lake.

The weather agency has 138 years of data for P.A., 126 years for Saskatoon, 115 years for Yorkton, and 74 years for Meadow Lake.

While not topping their own list, the dry conditions in other communities across the province are also some of the worst in their history.
