Brandon Sun - ONLINE EDITION

Dry July follows wet spring

First the flood, then the dry-out.

Environment Canada records show that July has been notably dry in Brandon, as if the taps suddenly turned off after an extraordinarily wet spring that included a record-setting rainfall in June.

With just a small chance of another sprinkle in the forecast through the end of the month, the Brandon airport weather station has recorded a total of just 25.2 mm of precipitation.

That's less than a third of the normal amount of rain in July, and is a microscopic one-tenth the amount of rain that fell in June.

In fact, on four separate days in June, Brandon got more rain in 24 hours than fell through the entire month of July. June's total rainfall was 251.6 mm, some 30 mm more than the previous record.
