Upwards of 100 millimetres of rain for some areas by tonight.

A low pressure system near Lloydminster this morning continues to produce significant rainfall amounts over Central and Southern Alberta today. Stettler has reported over 70 millimetres of rain since Monday evening. A further 40 to 60 millimetres of rain is forecast for parts of Southern Alberta through tonight.

This system is also producing strong wind gusts up to 90 km/h in areas east of Red Deer. Gusts should be intermittent and are expected to diminish later today as the system weakens.
