Two areas of low pressure will move onto the coast of British Columbia bring rain to the area.

Parts of Vancouver Island and the inner-south coast will see the heaviest rain.

Rain will commence near noon on Thursday and increase in intensity throughout the day.

Rainfall totals of 30 to 50 mm are expected by Friday morning with additional amounts of 30 to 50 mm possible through Friday night.

Winds around Vancouver Island and the inner-south coast will pick-up through the afternoon on Thursday. Coastal areas will see winds of 40 to 60 km/h at times. Given the much drier than normal conditions experienced this summer, some drought-stressed trees could be more susceptible to wind damage at lower speeds.
