The Peace Region could receive another 50 to 80 mm of rain this week.
Environment Canada has issued a statement that heavy rain is expected over northeast B.C. Beginning late Thursday night and continuing through Saturday morning. The forecast calls for 50 to 80 mm of rain.
The majority of the rain is expected to fall over central and southern parts of the Peace region. So far the models have been a bit inconsistent with rainfall amounts and exact locations. However, the pattern indicates a high probability for heavy rainfall over the Peace region starting late Thursday night and continuing through Saturday morning.
With more rain in the forecast, The B.C. River Forecast Centre has issued a high streamflow advisory for the Peace region.
Although most river systems in the Peace have dropped back down to the water levels prior to the flood event on June 25-28, soil conditions remain saturated and streams are expected to respond quickly to this additional precipitation. River levels in the region are forecast to rise, with the potential for high flows from Friday into the weekend. The amount that rivers rise will depend on the amount and location of rainfall received.
