Rainfall warning in effect for southern NB

Charlotte County – A rainfall warning is in effect for southern New Brunswick, which, combined by the possibility of double digit temperatures and frozen ground unable to absorb run off, could pose a flooding and ice jam hazard for many areas of the region.

Environment Canada warning preparedness meteorologist Claude Cote said this morning rainfall amounts will be in the range of 50-80 mm with the potential of more than 100 mms along the Fundy coast.

The rain is expected to change to freezing rain over the northern portion of the province Friday night.
