And the hits just keep on comin’! Another special weather statement for Charlotte County

Barb Rayner/Courier Heavy rains are forecast for Charlotte County on Tuesday. Residents are asked to watch areas where ice dams already exist.

Charlotte County – A special weather statement has been issued for southern New Brunswick preceding an anticipated 20 to 40 millimetres of rain Tuesday.

Precipitation is expected to begin as snow Monday night over western New Brunswick, spreading to eastern portions of the province. Snow will change to ice pellets, then freezing rain and finally rain in the south, but remain as freezing rain for northern New Brunswick.

Rain is expected to end by Wednesday morning.

Due to the potential rainfall amounts expected a significant amount of melting snow will give enhanced runoff which has the potential to lead to flooding in vulnerable areas.

Temperatures are forecasted to rise to nine degrees Celsius. This may cause any ice jams which formed during the last storm to give way and reform downstream. Residents are advice to closely monitor situations of which they are aware.
