Environment Canada has ended its rainfall warnings for St. John's, Avalon Peninsula North and the Clarenville and Bonavista areas.

The weather office says a broad area of low pressure south of Newfoundland has been pumping a steady stream of moisture across northeastern and Eastern Newfoundland over the past couple of days. The heavier rains started late Wednesday as showers and thundershowers developed over Northeastern Newfoundland and persisted through a good portion of Wednesday night. On Thursday, most of northeastern, central, and Eastern Newfoundland saw more persistent bands of moderate to heavy

rain which continued through last night.

In Environment Canada's preliminary figures, over a 36-hour period up to 3:30 a.m. this morning, the highest amounts of rain fell in the Terra Nova area and St. John's, 75 mm and 78.4 mm, respectively.
