Environment Canada issues rain, freezing rain warnings

Environment Canada issues rain, freezing rain warnings

First it was a warning about snow, then freezing rain, now Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for inland sections of the North Coast.

As of Wednesday morning, 20 mm has been reported in Kitimat.  Forecasters say the downpour will continue and approximately 50 mm of rain is forecast near Kitimat by Thursday morning.

That rainfall could result in localized flooding for low lying areas.

Environment Canada also issued freezing rain warnings for a large section of  northern BC Wednesday.

It says a Pacific front with moist air will extend from Terrace to the Peace River region. Periods of freezing rain are expected today as the higher warm air overrides the cold air near the surface.

The transportation ministry has issued a number of travel advisories across the Peace region due to slippery conditions.

In the Northwest, a number of school bus routes were canceled in the Bulkley Valley area Wednesday morning due to icy roads.
