Environment Canada has issued a special weather forecast for southwestern British Columbia.

“Another round of heavy rain is on its way,” the alarm went off.

The declaration, which requires 40 to 80 mm, affects the Fraser Valley, Metro Vancouver, the Sea to Sky Corridor and the Sunshine Coast from Gibsons to Earls Cove.

The National Weather Agency says the storm is expected to arrive overnight by Wednesday.

“This storm will be shorter and less intense than the event over November 13-15, 2021,” the statement said. “However, it will still bring moderate to heavy rain and strong winds.”

Environment Canada notes that freezing levels will rise above mountain peaks on Thursday.

“This could exacerbate recent floods and affect vulnerable landscapes and infrastructure.”

The statement says there is still “some uncertainty” in the total expected rainfall.

Meanwhile, a snowfall warning is in effect for Coquihalla Highway, between Hope and Merritt. Environment Canada says “the snow will continue today,” with levels between 25 and 30 cm.

“The snow will be light tonight,” the alarm continues.
