Assuming your garden avoided any major damage from the wind or hail, the rain from a pair of storms on Wednesday will certainly help things along.

Upwards of 50mm of rain fell on the Moose Jaw area with extra moisture coming from the hail after it melted. We were hit with two storms about 12 hours apart with the 3am storm dropping an absurd amount of hail on parts of the city that forced some to grab snow shovels to help clean up. The second storm was just after 3pm and saw high winds combined with heavy rain for a short amount of time.

We could see some more rain Friday and Saturday along with thunderstorm activity.
