Rainfall warning up to 80 mm through Thursday night

Environment Canada has issued a Rainfall Warning for Howe Sound. A warning for strong southeast winds near the water on Thursday is also in effect for Howe Sound.

Another storm system is set to arrive on the B.C. south coast tonight bringing heavy rain. The rain will be heaviest on Thursday as the storm moves across the south coast. The heavy rain will ease Thursday night as the system moves out of the region.

The northern sections of Metro Vancouver and Howe Sound will see up to 80 mm of rain by Thursday night while Fraser Valley will see 50 to 70 mm by early Friday morning.

This storm will be shorter-lived and less intense than the event over November 13-15, 2021. However, it will still bring moderate to heavy rain and strong winds. Additionally, freezing levels will rise above mountain tops on Thursday. This may worsen recent flooding and impact vulnerable landscapes and infrastructure.

Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Don't approach washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
