A large amount of rain is expected to fall in the Cochrane area over the next few days and that has prompted Environment Canada to issue a Special Weather Statement. 

We could get between 75 and 100 mm of rain by Wednesday morning. 

According to Environment Canada, the rainfall will impact the eastern slopes of the Rockies on Monday and Tuesday. The area from Hinton to Waterton is expected to see at least 50 mm of rain by Wednesday morning, and 100 mm or more could fall in some areas in the foothills. 

Most of the rainfall is expected to be near Kananaskis.
