Eastern Vancouver Island could see a wet and windy next few days, according to Environment Canada.
The Bowser area could see between 75-150 mm of rain over two days, starting Friday morning.
Two successive frontal systems will cross the south coast Friday through Sunday, with high water content associated with an atmospheric river flowing from the southwest off the Pacific Ocean, according to Environment Canada.
High southeasterly winds will also accompany this weather event. As freezing levels rise over 2000 m on Saturday, snow melt will also add to run off. Swelling of local streams and localized flooding are possible during this time.
“There is a fair amount of uncertainty with the timing and location of these two systems, and how long the break will be between them, if any. Warnings will likely be issued closer to the event and for fewer areas than are covered by this statement,” Environment Canada said in a release.
