WIND WARNING/RAINFALL WARNING issued for North Coast - Coastal sections

The North Coast wraps up the week, much the way it started it, with Environment Canada issuing a weather alert for the region, posting a WIND WARNING and RAINFALL WARNING for the North Coast at 9 PM Sunday evening.

A strong active frontal system is making a rapid approach to the North Coast and is expected to bring South-Southeast winds  of 90 km/h, gusting to 110 km/hr to exposed sections of the coastal North and Central Coasts into Monday morning.

Winds will ease off as the system passes through and moves into the Central Interior region of the province.

As it moves through, HEAVY RAINFALL  is expected with 100 to 125 mm of precipitation to come before the heaviest of the rain eases off on Monday.

Kitimat could potentially see rainfall totals of 200 mm.

The twin forecasts can be reviewed in full below:

For updates on the weather system as it arrives and transits eastbound see the Environment Canada forecast page here.

Road conditions may change further eastbound as the system heads inland, you can get the latest conditions from Drive BC through their website and twitter feed.
