A summer style storm hit the city Thursday night, giving us a good shot of moisture but varying numbers depending on where you live. Environment Canada is reporting just 4mm of rain from the storm although there was more in some corners of the city. For example, we collected 14mm in the newsroom gage on the north side of the city.
The storm brought some thunder and lighting, high winds, a tough of hail and brief power outages.
Afternoon heating lead to the storm system developing. We hit 34.6 degrees in Moose Jaw, beating the old record of 33 set in 1914 and that gave us a tie with Watrous for Saskatchewan hot spot and the Canadian hot spot. Around 20 other communities also saw record highs as part of the system.
That should be it for the rain though as the new forecast shows us getting back into the sun for the weekend.
