  • Grose Morne
  • Corner Brook and vicinty

Heavy rain is expected.

Total rainfall: 70 to 100 mm, locally higher amounts possible, especially over higher terrain.

Time span: continuing through Tuesday.

Similar storms in the past have caused:

• hazardous driving conditions

• elevated river levels

• increased runoff that could lead to localized flooding, especially in poor drainage areas.

Remarks: There is an increased risk of flooding, landslides, and washouts, especially in the areas that recently received significant rainfall near the Bonne Bay area.

Heavy downpours are likely to cause flash floods and water pooling on roads.

Don’t approach washouts near rivers, creeks, and culverts.

Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.
