It's coming: Big storm to pound B.C. coast Thanksgiving weekend

Vancouver is going to get pounded this weekend.

A large weather system is about to penetrate the west coast of Canada after pushing through Hawaii this week. Hurricane Oho is expected to move north-east through the Pacific while softening off before hitting the northern B.C. coast, according to the U.S. National Weather Service.

The tip of the post-tropical storm will thrust winds of 70 mph with gusts of up to 85 mph to the Haida Gwaii region and general wetness to most of the province.

Vancouverites will need to wear some extra protection this weekend to stay dry, as 25 to 35 mm of rain will fall over the city on Friday, 35 to 45 on Saturday and Sunday and another 10 to 15 mm on Monday with temperatures in the mid-teens.

We can only hope the weekend storm finishes quickly, but it’s coming one way or another.

P.S. this map looks like a giant dick.
