Rain expected in Agassiz-Harrison from Wednesday evening

With mild temperatures and sunny skies on Wednesday, the community of Agassiz-Harrison can expect rain in the coming days.

According to a weather report provided by the Government of Canada, periods of rain are expected to begin near midnight tonight and continue until Tuesday.

All rain enthusiasts are encouraged to grab a pair of wellies, an umbrella, and enjoy the weather, or cuddle up with a good book and a hot cup of tea if the rain is too foreboding.

Special weather statement:

A special weather statement has been released for this area, as a series of powerful October storms approaches the B.C. coast line.

Environment Canada says the first will hit on Wednesday night and a second storm is expected early Friday. A third will make landfall later on Saturday.

Rainfall will be heavy at times, with a total rainfall accumulations from these storms potentially exceeding 200 mm for West and Inland areas of Vancouver Island. Inner coastal regions may exceed 100 mm with even higher amounts near the mountains.

Strong winds will also accompany these storms and at times may exceed 80 km/h over exposed coastal areas.

They say “at this time it looks like each storm will become more intense. Details concerning the precise storm track is expected to become clearer as time progresses and warnings are likely to be issued for multiple regions throughout the next several days.”

All rain lovers are encouraged to submit their favourite rain photos to news@ahobserver.com to be featured online and in print.
