  • Moisture Updates - September 20, 2023

    In the 14-days since the last report on September 6, 2023, rainfall has been variable across the province with all four regions having areas that received less than 2 mm. In contrast through parts of the Central Region and along the foothills west of Fort Macleod more than 15 mm was recorded. For this time of year, this is enough in the short term to stimulate late season growth of pastures and hay land and perhaps fuel optimism for those planning fall seeded crops.
