Rainfall warning continues for Fraser Valley

A rainfall warning remains in effect for Abbotsford and many other Lower Mainland communities

A rainfall warning remains in effect for Abbotsford and the Fraser Valley.

Environment Canada renewed its rainfall warning Wednesday morning. The weather agency states:

“A long episode of rain, at times heavy, continues.

“A strong Pacific front fuelled with energy and moisture from the subtropics brought heavy rain to the inner south coast last night. There will be a break this morning before the next frontal wave arrives at the south coast this afternoon bringing more rain.

“This wave of fronts will result in a prolonged period of heavy rain.

“In Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, the highest rainfall amounts will be near the mountains with up to 100 mm expected by Thursday morning.

“The heavy rain will taper off on Thursday afternoon as the front finally moves eastward out of the area.

“If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

“Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.

The soggy weather is expected to continue for the next week.
