Grab your umbrellas because it’s about to get wet.

Environment Canada issued a rainfall warning for Metro Vancouver on Tuesday morning, with the threat of 100 mm of it set for the region over the next 48 hours.

The heavy rain is set to be caused by a strong Pacific front moving into the region that is being fuelled with moisture from the subtropics.

The wet weather is set to roll into town on Tuesday night and stick in the area throughout Wednesday, causing a prolonged period of heavy rain.

Environment Canada warn that areas near the mountains and the Fraser Valley could get up to 100 mm of rainfall by Thursday morning, with Squamish getting a similar soaking.

The rain is set to finally move away from the area on Thursday as the weather front moves east.
