UPDATE: For Monday, the North Peace Region will continue with heavy rain. An additional 15 to 20 mm. We have added some photos from Dawson Creek as the creek is at flood stage.
Environment Canada Details: A long episode of rain, at times heavy, is expected. The ground, already near saturation, has little ability to absorb further rainfall.
A low pressure system over northern Alberta will continue to give rain at times heavy to the northern BC Peace region today.
Communities in the north Peace have recorded from 30 to 80 mm so far from this storm; the highest amounts have been observed near the Rockies over communities like Hudson Hope.
A further 15 to 20 mm is forecast today and tonight before the rain ends.
Given the wet antecedent conditions in the region this past month (including a similar weather system last weekend), the ground is already saturated in many areas. The prolonged moderate to heavy rainfall may result in higher overland runoff.
