Prairies get a break from rain

Precipitation dodged the Prairies for the July 24 weather period, with all three Prairie provinces staying high and dry. Daytime highs for Alberta ranged from 28 C in central and southeastern areas of the province to as moderate as 20 C in the northwest. Saskatchewan ranged from as high as 30 C in south eastern and south central areas of the province. Areas between Melfort and Weyburn, Sask. recorded temperatures in the 22 C to 24 C range. Southern Manitoba continued its warm trend with daytime highs of 27 C in the Brandon and Carman, Man. areas.
