It was a wet weekend across Newfoundland's West Coast. Environment Canada reported 63.5 mm of rain in Port-aux-Basques, Stephenville accumulated 19.9 mm, and 13.4 mm in Burgeo. We recorded 16 mm in Corner Brook.

There was so much rain in fact that the road from West Bay to Mainland on the Port au Port Peninsula washed out on Saturday. There was significant damage done and there is no set date for repairs to be conducted.

All rain is blamed on a stubborn slow moving cold front. Rain began Friday afternoon and continued for much of the weekend with the heaviest rain falling on Saturday.
