Another frontal system approaching from the west will move over the South Coast tonight and then stall over the area Monday. Strong winds are not expected with this system but there is potential for locally heavy rainfall.

Rainfall amounts are expected to vary considerably across the Lower Mainland. Much lighter amounts are forecast over southern sections with increasingly larger amounts closer to the mountains.

The North Shore and higher terrain north of Lougheed Highway could see rainfall amounts approaching 50 mm by Monday afternoon. The Eastern Fraser Valley will also see heavier, more persistent rain on Monday as the onshore flow strengthens.
