Up to 90 mm of rain expected today, potential for snowfall by the weekend and into next week
A rainfall warning has been issued for the Tri-Cities as a moist Pacific frontal system sweeps over the south coast of B.C.
The heavy rain, which started Monday evening and continued throughout the morning, is expected to persist until late afternoon, dropping 60 to 90 millimetres of rain on the cities before moving on.
Environment Canada is warning residents about the possibility of localized flooding in low-lying areas, with heavy downpours raising the risk of flash floods and water pooling on roads.
Skies are expected to part by Wednesday, with a mix of sun and clouds into Thursday. By Friday, mixed precipitation could lead to isolated snowfall over the weekend, with Monday offering the best chance of snowfall as temperatures dip, according The Weather Network.
