Chilliwack breaks rain record Tuesday and more to come

More monsoon-like weather is on the way with another system full of subtropical moisture poised to strike Wednesday

Keep that umbrella handy.

Heavy rainfall warnings are still in effect for Chilliwack after heavy storms washed across the Eastern Fraser Valley this week.

More monsoon-like weather is on the way, say the meteorologists, with another frontal system full of subtropical moisture poised to strike the South Coast Wednesday night.

Tuesday saw a daily record broken on March 12, with 49.4 millimetres of rainfall, according to Roger Pannett, Chilliwack volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada.

That beat out the previous record of 42.2 mm for that day in Chilliwack set back in 1920.

The storm total hit 68.4 mm of rain by Wednesday morning, and the total to date for the month of March is 116.7 mm.

With the total average for the month at 176.1 mm, there still “more monsoon rain to come!” said Pannett.

Heavy rain was expected to continue through Wednesday night and all day Thursday. Another 50 to 80 mm is forecast to fall by March 14.
