Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning over parts of Metro Vancouver.

The weather bulletin is in effect for the following areas:

  • Metro Vancouver – North Shore including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
  • Metro Vancouver – northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge

“Heavy rain is expected tonight and Tuesday for Howe Sound, the North Shore, and northeastern Metro Vancouver,” says the weather agency in a statement.

Between 50 and 60 mm of rain is expected to fall by Tuesday afternoon.

The precipitation is caused by a series of frontal systems arriving over the south coast of the province.

“Rain at times heavy will continue through Tuesday and will ease Tuesday night,” says Environment Canada.
