Alerts in Effect
Special Weather StatementIssued at 15:53 Friday 21 October 2016
A heavy rainfall event is expected over parts of the Maritimes. The highest rainfall rates will likely occur Saturday. Current guidance is suggesting general amounts up to 40 mm over the region. As is the case with most heavy rainfall situations, the total amount of rain is not necessarily the problem, but rather the rate at which the rain falls.
Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of this system and recommends that anyone with weather sensitive activities or travels continue to monitor forecasts and the issuance of any future warnings.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to weatherASPC@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #PEStorm.
