As parts of the South Coast march towards their wettest November on record, there are growing concerns about the renewed threat of flooding, with three additional atmospheric rivers targeting the province over the next week.
Let’s walk through the forecast and talk about what we know.
On Wednesday, the day will start dry in the morning, but the shower threat steadily builds through the afternoon. By Wednesday evening, a steady rain develops, peaking into Thursday, before tapering to showers on Friday. Rainfall amounts will locally exceed 50 mm across Metro Vancouver, with the highest amount nestled up north of the Fraser River over higher terrain.
Friday, they’ll be lingering showers, and unfortunately, they’ll be more concentrated in the Fraser Valley, but we’re in limbo as another atmospheric river races towards the coast.
Rain at times heavy persists into Sunday. Between the two storms, over 100 mm of rainfall is likely across northern sections of Metro Vancouver, pushing monthly totals well over 400 mm for some. With the added snowmelt, some flooding is probable. Another concern is more landslides that take advantage of the weakened topsoil layer. The burn scars in the interior likely made matters much worse, so hoping heavy rainfall remains well southwest of Merritt. —Tyler Hamilton
