Good morning! It was a very wet start to the day at 3 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 99 per cent humidity and 6 km/h winds from the north-northeast.
And it’s only going to get more wet today, with a rainfall warning for the Fraser Valley, including Abbotsford. Rain, at times heavy, is expected, Environment Canada says.
“A very moist Pacific frontal system will remain stalled over the region today and tonight resulting in continued heavy rainfall for the Fraser Valley,” the warning says. “The rain will finally ease by Friday morning as the front moves out of the region. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.”
Abbotsford is expected to get 30 to 40 mm of rain through the day today, with winds of 40 to 60 km/h, and 10 to 20 mm of rain overnight.
