Groundwater expected to be replenished in parched Western Canada following forecasted storm

Prairies besieged by recent drought

June 20, 2022  By Ground Water Canada

The Weather Network has forecast a heavy storm today through most of the Prairies and northwestern Ontario, but it’s not being seen as all doom and gloom.

While widespread thunderstorms are expected across the area, possibly bringing with it heavy rain, gusting wind and hail, groundwater impacted by recent drought can be replenished.

The swath of area in Western Canada is also being monitored for the potential of localized flooding.


Intense prairie heat reached a high of 36.9 degrees Celsius Sunday in Winnipeg. The heat has dissipated in Saskatchewan, but is expected to be around longer in Manitoba.
