After temperatures soared above 30 degrees last week the rain in the Foothills is being welcomed with open arms.
Rainfall amounts in the Foothills range anywhere from 10- 25 millimetres.
Dan Kulak, meteorologist with Environment Canada, says it's difficult to pin point exactly how much moisture a certain area receives.
"It has been spotty precipitation around Southern Alberta so that stuff is very localized when it does move through," he explains. "You can certainly get 25 millimetres in one place and basically nothing in others."
According to Kulak, Okotoks stats run off the Black Diamond weather station which estimates the town received about 10.3 millimetres of rain when the showers began on Monday.
He says while the heat will return, we could see short moments of relief.
"Returning back into that heat by Thursday, sunny and 32, but that being stated being close to the foothills it doesn't take a lot to get these isolated storms developing and moving through areas in the late afternoon and early evening."
