Rainfall warning issued for Metro Vancouver

Heavy rain is expected throughout the region Sunday, Jan. 30.

Environment Canada is cautioning those in the Lower Mainland that up to 70 mm of rain may fall; areas of particular concern are the central and northeastern parts of the city, North Vancouver, and the Fraser Valley.

“A weather system continues to bring heavy rain to the region today,” says the federal agency in a weather statement.

They warn that drivers may find visibility reduced.

“Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Watch for possible washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts,” they add.

The rain is expected to clear up later in the day, as winds of up to 70 km / h arrive. The weather is forecast to calm down by Monday morning, when there’ll be a mix of sun and cloud.
