This week’s map shows the amount of precipitation that fell across Alberta during the 30 days ending Oct. 29 compared to the long-term normal. A good portion of agricultural Alberta saw average to slightly above average amounts of precipitation during October. The extreme northern region, along with western parts of the central and southern regions, were wetter, with some areas seeing well above average amounts. The Peace River region extending southeastward through Edmonton was drier with some areas seeing low to very low amounts of precipitation. — Daniel Bezte
