A well-known agricultural meteorologist believes conditions in most parts of Saskatchewan will be favorable in September.
Most southern and central areas have not received a great deal of rain over the past week . . . even though there have been more showers across the northern grainbelt.
"The drier bias will likely continue to be dominant through the month of September," said Drew Lerner with World Weather Inc. "We will still have a couple of storms coming through to interrupt things, but I don't think it will be very common. We should see a below average precipitation bias prevailing across a big part of the region. Temperatures for awhile should be above normal across the western and southern portions of the prairies."
Lerner says parts of northeast Saskatchewan and Manitoba will likely trend cooler during the second half of September.
Computer models are looking promising for winter weather conditions.
"We willl most likely see a warmer bias in the western areas. Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan will have a tendency to be warmer than normal through a fair amount of the winter season. The easternmost parts of the prairies will probably have a little more cold air coming around."
Lerner says the coldest temperatures will be in Ontario and Quebec.
