FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The weekend rain has left its mark on the B.C. Peace with roads being closed all over the region.

The Fort St. John Airport received 50mm of rain by noon on Monday. The good news is there is only a 30 percent chance of rain on Tuesday. The high should reach 18, but it will be even better by the weekend with highs near 25 degrees.

Highway 29 is closed in both directions from Mile 54 of the Alaska Highway to Hudson’s Hope due to flooding. The South Taylor Hill remains single-lane alternating traffic due to a sinkhole, and several roads in the South Peace are closed because of washouts.
