UPDATE: 10:30 a.m.
In case it hasn’t been wet enough in the Lower Mainland, a storm front is bringing heavy downpours and powerful winds to the region starting Thursday.
According to Environment Canada, the region can expect to see 70 to 90 millimetres of rain by Friday morning.
The agency is warning the storm could cause flash floods and water to pool on roads.
After the rain the Lower Mainland may also be hit with winds, Environment Canada said.
The national forecaster is calling for southeast winds of 70 kilometres-per-hour for Friday afternoon, before easing by late evening.
Drivers are asked to turn on their lights and watch for washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.
Further north the rain will turn to snow on the Sea-to-Sky.
Environment Canada says the region is expecting five to 10 centimetres Thursday, on top of the 15 centimetres that already fell overnight.
Road conditions are changing quickly and could deteriorate as more snow falls.
