It's a sprint to the finish line for a wet stretch of weather in southeast Saskatchewan.

Widespread areas could see 60 millimetres of rain from Thursday into Friday, according to Environment and Climate Change Canada.

The government agency issued a rainfall warning early Thursday morning, as "a developing low pressure system will spread rain with embedded thunderstorms into southeastern Saskatchewan beginning late in the day Thursday."

You can expect the heaviest downpours Thursday night into Friday morning.

The most significant precipitation should taper off later Friday, though some showers are likely for the first half of the weekend.

"In addition to the heavy rain, strong winds gusting as high as 80 km/h will be possible overnight Thursday into Friday," said the warning. "Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible."

Environment Canada's Estevan monitoring station recorded 4.2 millimetres of rain Wednesday. Nothing fell there on Tuesday. But there were 26.6 millimetres Monday, and a combined 6.4 millimetres last Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
