A prolonged and significant rainfall event is expected, with 50 to 80 millimetres of rain by Wednesday morning, Environment Canada said Monday at 10:30 a.m.
Heavy rain will begin Monday evening and persist until Wednesday.
“Look to your municipality and the province of Alberta (rivers.alberta.ca) for the latest information and recommendations,” Environment Canada said.
