Moisture Update - April 17, 2024


Map 1: Since April 7, 2024, further moisture has fallen across much of the province (Map 1), but unfortunately not everywhere. Moisture is still desperately needed across much of the North East and Central Peace Regions, and through parts of the North West Region.

Over the past 10 days, parts of southern Alberta received an additional 10-15 mm of moisture while some areas in the mountains and foothills saw upwards of 30 mm. Notably many of the northern forested areas received 5 to 15 mm, but coverage was sporadic and not all areas received moisture. 

For those areas north of the TransCanada Highway, April is still on average a dry month with the wet season arriving later the further north you go. For the Peace Region, the May long weekend usually marks the start of wetter weather in a 'normal' year.
