Wet Weather on way for North Coast

A strong Pacific front is about to
make itself known to the North Coast
The precipitation levels for the next few days on the North coast will be a little heavier than your gentle April Showers, with Environment Canada forecasting Rain at times heavy, through until Wednesday.

So far the coastal areas of the North Coast will not bear as much of a brunt of the approaching storm as will the inland areas, which appear to be the centre for the approaching storm.

Those travelling to Terrace, Kitimat or further inland, will want to take note of the Heavy Rain Warning issued by Environment Canada on Monday.

That will see some 50 plus mm of rain fall through Tuesday with winds at times up to 60 km/h

For Prince Rupert and other coastal locations, much the same forecast is in place, though precipitation levels are somewhat lower for the coast.

Things are expected to clear for the region by Saturday, the forecast for Prince Rupert and other coastal areas in the region can be viewed below:

Haida Gwaii's forecast does not appear to provide for the higher rates of rainfall that the mainland will feel as the storm comes in.

Should updated information be provided by Environment Canada we will update this post as required.
