Statements

10:53 PM PDT Monday 16 October 2017
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Howe Sound

Two fall storms will bring heavy rain and strong winds to BC this week.

A slow moving frontal system over the central coast will finally move southward overnight. Rain will become heavy at times over the south coast and southeast winds will increase as the front approaches. The front will cross the Lower Mainland Tuesday morning. In its wake, winds will shift to the west with gusts as high as 80 to 90 km/h. Rain will taper to scattered showers.

Rainfall and wind warnings have been issued for some regions and may be expanded overnight.

Snow levels over the BC Interior will lower to near 1200 metres on Tuesday afternoon, changing precipitation into flurries at summit level for some highway passes.

The second storm system will arrive on the South Coast early Wednesday, bringing another round of wind and heavy rain. Additional rainfall and wind warnings may be issued for this storm. It is possible that falling leaves may block storm drains, combining with significant rain to cause local flooding. Freezing levels will rise again with the next round of precipitation. No snowfall is expected over high elevation mountain passes on Wednesday and Thursday.
