Summary

Rain and gusty winds today and Friday. The first of a pair of Pacific disturbances has arrived on the south coast of BC, bringing heavy rain to Vancouver Island. Rain is forecast to spread throughout the inner south coast by this evening. Brisk southeast winds are also in the forecast. Rainfall amounts near 30 mm are expected from the first disturbance by Friday morning. A slight break in the rain is expected Friday morning before the second system brings about another 30 mm of rain by Saturday morning. The highest rainfall amounts are expected over the North Shore of Metro Vancouver, Howe Sound and parts of East Vancouver Island. Southeast winds will increase late this afternoon ahead of the first system. Communities near northern Strait of Georgia will feel the strongest winds with speeds reaching 40 to 60 km/h for most of tonight and Friday. Given the much drier than normal conditions experienced this summer, some drought-stressed trees could be more susceptible to wind damage at these moderate speeds. ### Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
