When the skies over Chilliwack finally opened up Monday morning to release almost 20 millimetres of rain, it was a welcome respite from more than a month of drought.
A total of 19.8 mm of rain fell throughout the day, up to 9:30 p.m. on Monday (July 24), according to Roger Pannett, Chilliwack’s volunteer weather observer and storm chaser.
“It was our wettest day since the 27.1 mm on April 9,” Pannett reported. “It’s so good for the trees, plants and us all after the 31-day drought!”
