Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for North Shore.
There will be heavy rain on Thursday night and through to Friday in the region. The alert is also in effect for Fraser Valley, Howe Sound and the Sunshine Coast.
The total rainfall accumulation is expected to be from 30 to 50 mm, and rain will continue to Friday night.
“A robust frontal system will approach the BC coast on Thursday. By Thursday night rain will begin over south coast regions with the heaviest rain expected through the day on Friday. Rain will ease overnight Friday as the frontal band passes through,” says Environment Canada.
Consider clearing leaves and debris from drainage areas as the heavy rain could pose issues with regards to potential local flooding.
