Rainfall warning in effect for:

  • Howe Sound

Rain, at times heavy, is expected.

A Pacific frontal system bringing abundant moisture will remain stalled over the South Coast today and tonight.

The heaviest amounts will be over the North Shore, where total rainfall amounts will reach up to about 70 mm by early Sunday morning, with lesser amounts expected away from the mountains. Meanwhile, Howe Sound will receive up to about 90 mm of rain in the same time frame. The rainfall rates will ease late tonight into Sunday morning as the front moves off to the north.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

Rainfall Warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to pacificstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #BCStorm.
