Public Notice | Special Weather Statement for Pemberton

Posted on October 16, 2017

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Pemberton. We will see heavy rains Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Details are below. 

The Village will be closely monitoring the weather and will provide updates as necessary on our website and via Facebook.

Monday, October 16th Statement:

Two fall storms will bring double rain events to BC this week.

A strong and mild southwesterly flow from the Pacific is maintaining a frontal zone over central coast. This front will slowly move southward today spreading a significant amount of rainfall over the south coast tonight. See public warnings for more details. Rain will taper off on Tuesday over coastal regions. Freezing levels over the BC interior will drop slightly on Tuesday afternoon changing precipitations into flurries at summit level for some highway passes.
The second storm system will arrive on the south coast early Wednesday, bringing another round of wind and heavy rain. Rainfall and wind warnings may be issued for this storm. It is possible that falling leaves may block storm drains and combined with significant rain, cause local flooding. Freezing levels will rise again with the next round of precipitation. No snowfall is expected over high elevation mountain passes on Wednesday and Thursday.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.tempetepacifique-pacificstorm.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
