Rain rain going away, maybe

first_imgThe rainy weather that has been plaguing the Peace River Region recently looks to be at an end… at least for now.According to Environment Canada officials, the unusually cool, wet weather has been caused by a large trough of low atmospheric pressure, which has been sitting over B.C. for an extended period of time.- Advertisement -This trough has stretched all the way up to Alaska and the Yukon and down through the B.C. coastline into the U.S.The result of this large trough has been considerable cloud accumulation and extended periods of rain.Officials say the trough is expected to move away from B.C., starting this weekend, which could bring an end to the excessively rainy season.However, before then, the Peace can still expect some rain on Wednesday and Thursday.Advertisement Last Friday, Fort St. John received 20 millimetres of rain and 34 mm falling throughout the entire weekend.So far this month, Fort St. has already received 115.2 mm of rain, surpassing the monthly average of 83.2 mm.last_img read more
