Minimal rain leads to negative impact on local crops and wildfires

As mentioned above, the minimal rainfall will do nothing this late in the year to improve crop conditions. In fact, any September precipitation will only interrupt what will be the limited harvest options available to local farmers and ranchers.

Similarly, the small amount of rain is not likely to do much to assist wildfire fighters.

As of early yesterday afternoon, the Mount McAllister fire still had an estimated burn area of nearly 26,000 hectares and was 60 percent contained.

Meantime, the fire 50 kilometers northwest of Williston Lake, first discovered 3 months ago, still covers a similar burn area but is now 80 percent contained.

The much bigger one, 50 kilometers west of Williston, still has an estimated burn area of more 60,000 hectares, and like the Mount McAllister fire, it is 60 percent contained.
