Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Metro Vancouver.
Over the next two days, residents living in Metro Vancouver and the North Shore should prepare for an abundance of rain and gusty winds.
According to a statement, “a pair of Pacific disturbances are approaching the south coast of BC.” The result will be heavy rain and “brisk southeast winds” in Vancouver Island and the inner south coast.
The downpour is expected to start later this afternoon and grow in intensity by this evening. Showers will continue throughout Friday, hopefully ending sometime on Saturday.
By Friday morning, anywhere from 20 to 50 mm of rain are expected. 30 to 50 mm of rainfall are expected from Friday afternoon to Saturday morning.
Specifically, those in the North Shore are expected to see the most rainfall.
Be sure to dress for the weather, bring an umbrella along, and if driving, leave extra time for getting to and from your destination.
