Heavy rain is expected. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall.
Total rainfall: 40 to 70 mm by Monday morning. Potentially higher in heaviest rain.
Location: most of New Brunswick
Time span: beginning this evening and continuing until Monday evening.
Remarks: Strong winds and mild temperatures will accompany the rain, leading to significant snowmelt and run-off. The rain is likely to change to snow over parts of northwest New Brunswick before ending Monday night.
Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.
