A rain fall warning has been lifted for Saskatoon. But it'll still be a pretty wet Saturday in the city.
"We're looking at a showery day (Saturday). Probably going to be in the order of 10 millimetres or so," said Environment Canada's David Baggaley.
Areas north of Saskatoon will see more than twice that amount. A rainfall warning remains in effect for areas north of city including Martensville, Warman, Rosthern, Wakaw, Prince Albert, Duck Lake, Meadow Lake, and Big River.

Saskatoon police are investigating a shooting they believe to be gang related.
Police got a call just before 10 p.m. Friday night saying a man had fired a gun off at someone on the 300 block of Avenue N South.
The blast apparently hit a building and shattered a window. But so far there's no indication from police anyone was hurt. Street gang unit members were called in with the K-9 unit. They tracked the man to a house on Avenue H South. So far, no arrests have been made.
Saskatoon’s Pride Parade will be one float short Saturday.
Pride Festival organizers, Saskatoon Diversity Network (SDN), asked 302 Lounge to remove its float after the club pulled their sponsorship.
Both the club and SDN released statements on their Facebook pages, but without specific details as to why funding was pulled. SDN said 302 Lounge had broken its contract by pulling funding but not the reason why the funding was pulled. This left the community wondering what happened.
New businesses are causing congestion in the already limited parking at Mano's Plaza.
Only a few days ago, Five Guys Burgers and Fries opened up on 8th Street and hundreds of people showed up to eat at the popular burger chain.
"They opened up in a small corner lot on the same block that is entirely owned by Mano's Plaza, except for that small block," said Genevieve Barlas.
She is the the wife of plaza and restaurant owner Manolis Barlas. She said the City allowed Five Guys to open and operate with 17 parking stalls.
Protecting the urban waterways in the northeast part of the city is what the Meewasin Nature by Design Project plans to do.
Mike Velonas, manager of planning and conservation with Meewasin Valley Authority said the Northeast Swale was seen as an important natural area by Meewasin and the City of Saskatoon for a long time.
"The recent expansion of the city due to our economic good times has meant that this area has seen increasing pressure for development," said Velonas.
The heavy rains are causing dangerous driving conditions for cars and pedestrians.
Friday morning at 10:50 a.m. police were called to the scene after a woman was hit by a vehicle.
She was walking on the crosswalk on 22nd Street and Avenue W when she was struck by a turning vehicle.
The vehicle was going slow enough that she was treated on scene for minor injuries and then released.
The driver was given a Summary Offence Ticket for failing to yield to a pedestrian on a marked crosswalk.
The heavy rains in Saskatoon have caused a car accident.
Traffic is backed up on Circle Drive South after a vehicle lost control because of water on the road. It spun out and hit another vehicle.
The accident happened just before 1 p.m. Friday afternoon.
Traffic was moving very slowly in the southbound lane while police were still on the scene. The vehicle has since been moved and traffic is back to normal.
It's not a health issue you think about regularly but Saskatchewan has a higher than national average of tuberculosis (TB) cases.
"Many people think that TB is of a bygone era but that's not the case," said Health Minister Dustin Duncan.
At the Saskatchewan Provincial Tuberculosis Strategy, Duncan announced that the Saskatchewan government is investing $500,000 to support a new TB strategy.
"It's going to be a number of areas; more people on the ground to do surveillance work, to do diagnosis treatment, to do follow up work," he said.
The Saskatoon Blades sent another veteran away on Thursday after they traded forward Lukas Sutter to Red Deer for defenceman Kevin Pochuk.

Environment Canada is issuing a heavy rainfall warning for parts of Saskatchewan over the next few days.
The rain will start Thursday night and is expected to last through Saturday, possibly bringing more than 100 millimetres of precipitation. Saskatoon can expect between 50 to 80 millimetres (about two to three inches).
The shower will bring a quick 10 to 15 millimetres worth of rain before moving north, according to meteorlogist David Baggaley with Environment Canada.
