Environment Canada says we could be in for quite a bit of rain throughout the day.

A special weather statement has been issued for much of southern New Brunswick, including:

  • Fredericton and Southern York County
  • Grand Lake and Queens County
  • Grand Manan and Coastal Charlotte County
  • Oromocto and Sunbury County
  • Saint John and County
  • St. Stephen and Northern Charlotte County
  • Stanley – Doaktown – Blackville Area
  • Sussex – Kennebecasis Valley and Kings County
  • Woodstock and Carleton County

Forecasters say rain is expected to move into the region through the morning on Wednesday.

“The rain is expected to become intermittent in the afternoon with locally heavy downpours and embedded thundershowers lasting through the night,” the weather agency said in its statement.

“Weather systems of this nature can cause a significant amount of rain to fall in a short period of time leading to localized flooding and sharp reductions to visibility.”

Environment Canada says localized totals of more than 50 millimetres are not out of the question, especially in those heavy downpours and thundershowers.

The rain is expected to taper to showers throughout Wednesday night.
