Alerts for: Metro Vancouver
4:00 PM PDT Wednesday 19 September 2018
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Metro Vancouver - northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
- North Shore - including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
Rain and wind to close out the week.
A pair of disturbances are approaching the south coast of BC and are expected to bring rain and wind to parts of Vancouver Island and the inner-south coast.
Rain is forecast to develop near midday on Thursday for many locations and increase in intensity that evening. Periods of rain will likely continue through Friday before coming to an end early Saturday morning. Rainfall totals of 30 to 50 mm are expected by Friday morning with additional amounts of 30 to 50 mm possible through Friday night.
Winds around Vancouver Island and the inner-south coast will pick-up through the afternoon on Thursday. Coastal areas will see winds of 40 to 60 km/h at times. Given the much drier than normal conditions experienced this summer, some drought-stressed trees could be more susceptible to wind damage at lower speeds.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
