Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for Howe Sound.
A strong Pacific storm is on the way for Thursday afternoon and Friday for the BC coast. Heavy rain is expected.
The storm will approach the coast on Thursday, with rain spread onto the south coast by midday Thursday. The rain may be briefly mixed with wet snow Thursday afternoon.
It will then intensify Thursday evening and persist through Friday. During that period, 60 to 90 mm of rain will fall over Howe Sound and Metro Vancouver.
It will eventually diminish in intensity Friday night but light rain or showers will continue into Saturday.
Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
