The forecast predicting heavy rain overnight for Chilliwack was right on the money.
Rainfall drenched Chilliwack pretty good and by 8 a.m. Friday the total reached 52.1 mm, said Environment Canada’s volunteer weather observer, Roger Pannett.
It was a lot of rain and wind, but it didn’t break any records.
The record of 79.0 mm was set in 1932.
Still there were “strong, gusty winds’ which led to a few power outages, Pannett reported.
Temperatures also rose six degrees to hit a mild 15.2 C.
