Special Weather Statement

Issued at 11:19 Monday 16 October 2017

Summary

Two fall storms will bring double rain events and strong winds to BC this week. A strong and mild southwesterly flow from the Pacific is maintaining a frontal zone over central coast. This front will slowly move southward today spreading significant rainfall and strong southeast winds over the south coast tonight (see public warnings for more details). Rain will taper off on Tuesday over coastal regions and strong southwest wind gusts will develop as the front pushes to the south. Freezing levels over the BC interior will drop slightly on Tuesday afternoon changing precipitations into flurries at summit level for some highway passes. The second storm system will arrive on the south coast early Wednesday, bringing another round of wind and heavy rain. Additional rainfall and wind warnings may be issued for this storm. It is possible that falling leaves may block storm drains and combined with significant rain, cause local flooding. Freezing levels will rise again with the next round of precipitation. No snowfall is expected over high elevation mountain passes on Wednesday and Thursday. ### Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
