Rainfall Warning

Issued at 05:17 Sunday 21 October 2018

Summary

Extremely heavy rain is expected. Rain, at times heavy, will persist through this evening before the rain tapers off later tonight into Monday morning. Torrential downpours at times giving rainfall rates near 15 mm per hour are possible. Further amounts of 70 to 100 mm are expected over most areas; however, some locations will receive totals in the range of 100 to 150 mm today and tonight. The heaviest rain will likely occur inland and over higher elevations, with portions of the Bay d'Espoir and Burin Peninsula Highways vulnerable to receiving some of the highest amounts. Motorists are advised to monitor road conditions and be aware of the potential for washouts and disruptions to travel. ### Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Rapidly rising rivers and creeks can sweep away bridges, culverts, buildings, and people. Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to NLstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #NLwx.
