After a blissful few days of optimal sunny conditions in Metro Vancouver, Environment Canada is warning the weather will quickly change starting tomorrow.

A bulletin issued Sunday morning warns a frontal system west of the offshore waters over the Pacific Ocean will rapidly intensify today as it approaches the BC coast.

Upwards of 100 mm to 150 mm of rainfall is expected for Vancouver Island between Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning.

Over the South Coast, the frontal system will become entrenched overnight Monday and through until Tuesday afternoon, with 50 mm to 75 mm expected to fall in Metro Vancouver and the Howe Sound.

Rainfall is expected to continue throughout the week, until at least Friday.

Temperatures will be relatively mild over the course of the week, with lows and highs in the low- to -mid-teens.
