Metro Vancouver could be in store for a soggy week.
Environment Canada says a series of storms, currently brewing in the Gulf of Alaska, is set to roll through BC in the coming days.
The weather agency says the South Coast will get the first of the rains today, with winds up to 60 km/h expected to blow through the area this evening and 20-40 mm of rain by early Wednesday morning.
But it says the worst of it should hit later in the week.
Officials have issued a special weather statement, warning Vancouver, Victoria, and Nanaimo are in for powerful winds and heavy rain from late Thursday morning, through to Friday.
“There remains a fair bit of uncertainty as to the timing of the storms’s exit into Washington state. The storm could linger over the southern part of the province all day Friday, bringing copious amounts of precipitation.”
The agency is warning the public to keep an eye on coming forecasts, in case conditions worsen.
