As of June 7, Environment Canada has ended the Special Weather Statement.
Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement as Significant Rainfall is headed for Northeastern BC, particularly around the Fort Nelson region…
A series of disturbances will move through northern BC bringing periods of moderate to heavy rainfall tonight through Monday. Potential impacts for this event include rising rivers and destabilizing slopes.
An already moist air mass will be enhanced by upslope flow, particularly on the east slopes of the Northern Rockies. The communities of Liard River, Muncho Lake, Toad River, Nelson Forks, Sikanni Chief and their surrounding higher terrain may see up to 50 to 80 mm of total rainfall. These areas have experienced moderate rainfall events over the past few weeks thus the ground is quite saturated in some places.
