Don’t expect the nasty weather pummeling southwest B.C. to end any time soon. Environment Canada says a rainfall warning continues for Metro Vancouver and Howe Sound and a long stretch of rain is expected.

Back-to-back weekend Pacific storms will continue to bring heavy rain to the north shore of Metro Vancouver and the Howe Sound region.

Rain eased Sunday morning as the first storm moved into the B.C. interior. However, the second Pacific storm will move in quickly and will bring more heavy rain late over the next 24 hours.

Additional rainfall amounts of up to 50 mm are expected for the north shore of Metro Vancouver and the Howe Sound region by Monday morning.

As of this morning, YVR received 41 mm of rain, with Squamish and West Vancouver receiving 55 mm and 62 mm respectively.

Meanwhile, waves have been pounding the Sidney waterfront after powerful wind gusts blew through Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast.

Hundreds of people on the island and the Lower Mainland were in the dark on Saturday, but BC Hydro is not reporting any major outages this morning.

BC Ferries were also forced to cancel several routes.

The Tseshaht First Nations, located to the west of Port Alberni, has declared a State of Emergency because of fears of flooding – although Chief Councillor Hugh Braker says it is mostly a precautionary measure at this point.

Wind warnings are still in effect for Vancouver Island, the Southern Gulf Islands and the Sunshine Coast.
