Prince George, B.C.- Typically,  Prince George  can expect about  65 mm of rain in a given June,  at least that’s the average over the past 30 years.   June 2016 will go on the books as one very soggy month.As of 5 last evening, Prince George had already received 54.5 mm of rain  for the month of June,  and Environment Canada is predicting  another  20-25 mm  before today is through and this   system  moves out of the region.

There are still two weeks left to  go  in the month.

It could be worse.

Yesterday  Ft. St. John had received  52.6 mm  in a 24 hour  period,  Tumbler Ridge   had snow before  it changed to rain leaving it and Chetwynd  sopping wet.  There’s another 50 -60mm predicted before this  weather system moves out of the area later this evening.

The River Forecast Centre   had issued  flood watches for some areas in the Peace as  rivers  rose rapidly.  The rivers are expected to peak  by  late Friday and start to recede.

250News will keep you updated.


I would rather have to much rain for a while than to have forest fires…at least everything is green…

    Well maybe you didn’t have to be working out in it. I was sure cold and wet today.
