There were Environment Canada predictions of up to 80 mm of rain in the B.C. Interior over the weekend. However, despite a string of electrical storms and heavy rain warnings issued for this area, the readings at the Airport show that Fort St. John got less than 7 mm.

Precipitation of 5.4 mm was recorded yesterday and 1.4 mm on Saturday, bringing the monthly total to 13.6 mm, not enough to ease the current drought conditions. That total is still less than 1/4 of the norm for this month that is now one third finished.

In fairness to the Weather Agency, there were significant rainfalls elsewhere, including several centers surrounding Fort St. John. On Sunday alone Grande Prairie got more than 15 mm, Prince George close to 25 and Fort Nelson close to 30.
