Vancouver Weather: Rainfall warning continues for Lower Mainland

A rainfall warning continues today for much of Metro Vancouver.

Environment Canada says some areas of the Lower Mainland have received 100 mm of rain since Wednesday morning and additional rainfall amounts of 20 to 30 mm are expected today.

“The heavy showers are expected to ease somewhat this afternoon. However, rain will redevelop tonight as the next system approaches the region,” the weather agency said.

Environment Canada warns heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads.

“Watch for possible washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts,” the warning said.

All the news is not soggy, however, the seven-day forecast shows that we are due for some sunshine early next week. So, we got that going for us.
