The Cariboo region saw its fair share of precipitation yesterday (August 9th), with some areas reaching over 30 millimetres (mm).
Williams Lake saw 17.2mm of rain yesterday, which didn’t quite break the precipitation record of 22.8mm set in 2008, with Quesnel and 100 Mile House getting up to the 7-8.5mm range.
Meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau says most of the rain fell elsewhere.
“Some of the forestry stations away from the city itself did see some higher amounts in the Williams Lake area.” says Charbonneau.
“So I have Gavin, the station there reporting up to 32mm of rain, Bowering forestry station 39mm of rain, Meadow Lake reported 29mm.”
Charbonneau added that more rain is expected for tonight and tomorrow, however she says we shouldn’t see the same numbers we saw yesterday.
Once the rain does clear, we’re expected to go back to above seasonal temperatures, reaching the 29-30 degree mark this weekend and the beginning of next week.
